Unable to create list in sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • An unhandled exception occurred in the silverlight application sharepoint 2010 . I am getting this message; i had checked the central administration for the security settings under General tab; the Setting are ON only. Still I am getting error when I am creating the list.

    Any help will be useful.

    i had checked the MS blogs; everywhere the same solution is given; but to me this is not working.

    Thanks

  • First- dig through the ULS Logs to be sure there isn't more relevant information on your error.

    If you can't find a more detailed error then read on.

    This usually happens when their are corrupt site columns on the site, missing features that once deployed site columns that didn't get uninstalled properly, or corrupt list definitions (not installed properly).

    Easiest way to test, Create a new web application and see if the problem continues.  If the new web application works, then go back to your old web application and continue

    0.5. Retract any custom wsp's installed that deploy Fields, ContentTypes, Or List Definitions

    1.  Reactivate the OOTB site columns

    -Disable/Enable-SPFeature fields -url http://messedupsitehere

    2. Reactivate the OOTB Content Types

    -Disable/Enable-SPFeature ctypes -url http://messedupsitehere

    e.g.

    Disable-SPFeature fields -url http://vm.local -confirm:$false -ea 0

    Enable-SPFeature fields -url http://vm.local

    What this does it reactivate the feature that deploys the OOTB site columns (which is activated automatically via feature dependencies and feature stapling when you create a new site)  If you retracted all your custom wsp's deployed to the site doing this should restore all of the ootb fields and content types.

  • Hi Satya,

    You could also use this work around to see if you are able to create a list

    http://<your site name>/_layouts/create.aspx

    This will take you to create page with out silverlight

  • The list I can create successfully without the sliverlight. The second option i can create the list using sharepoint designer. I will try out what Ryan T Mann to find out the root cause.

    Cheers
