SharePoint Foundation 2010 solution cannot be deployed to SharePoint Server 2010

    Question

  • I have made a site in SharePoint Foundation 2010. I used team site as a starting template. I have saved it as my own custom template.

    Next, I have added that solution to SharePoint Server 2010. When I tried to create a new site in SharePoint Server 2010 based on it, I got an error that a feature is missing. Missing feature guid is e8389ec7-70fd-4179-a1c4-6fcb4342d7a0. Looking at the solution's ONet file, it appears to be a 'ReportServer Feature'.

    Now, my question is: Is it really possible that SharePoint Foundation 2010 may contain features that do not exist in SharePoint Server 2010? Isn't SharePoint Server supposed to be wider set of SharePoint Foundation?

    Please help. Thanks.

  • All the features in a default installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010 are included in SharePoint Server 2010.  But I suspect that your SharePoint Foundation farm includes a later addition of integration with SQL Reporting Services, which has added some additional components.  Those components haven't been added to the SharePoint Server farm.  Make sure that everything that has been added to the Foundation installation is also added to the Server installation and you should be fine.
