Configuration issue - File not Found (There is no Web named "/sites/content-typehub".)

May 16, 2012 at 8:51 AM

I've hit some issues straight away trying to configure this.

After trying a number of configurations with the definehub.ps1 (discovered that it didn't require a trailing slash after the template URL & didn't like using the FQDN)

I can reach the screen where you choose the library......

Once I tick a library and click next, I get an ERROR: FILE NOT FOUND SharePoint error in the dialogue window. ULS shows;

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: There is no Web named "/sites/content-typehub"

My Content Type Hub = http://sitename/sites/content-typehub

I want to use the root site in the above site collection as the template hub. I tried creating a subsite http://sitename/sites/content-typehub/templatehub but this wouldn't work when I tried.

I've tried with all number of combinations of using the FQDN, trailing slashes...I have a library called Templates with a view including the Title column.

I have a word document in the library

Is anyone monitoring this area?

Yes, but I have been away on vacation. I will try and look into this tonight.

Ok brilliant, hope you had a good holiday!

A quick update for you: My laptop went bust the day before I started my vacation, and Dell was supposed to fix it while I was away. They tried to fix it for 4 consecutive days (final attempt was today), pretty much replacing all of the components in it without any success. They now want to take it with them since they still can't figure out why it's not booting up. That means I have no testing environment, I guess for at least the entire next week :(
(I wonder why I bother paying for NextBusinessDay support...)

I will try to check out your problems and see if there is something obvious that is wrong, but as long as my computer is missing it's hard to debug... :)
(Right now I'm on my customer's computer, but this pretty much can't be used for troubleshooting, as the TemplateHub is working without any problems here, and I probably need a clean environment to try to reproduce your problem).

If you have a little bit of patience, I will get back on your case as soon as Dell shows up with my laptop again, unless I can spot the obvious bug without testing... I will update as soon as I have some info for you :)

Hi, no worries - hope you get the laptop sorted!

I'm going to also try and install in another environment, will post back my findings.

Update: I created a new web application with the TemplateHub at the root; http://server:8888/

and another site collection on; http://server:8888/sites/testing

I ran the following;

.\DefineHub.ps1 "http://servername:8888/" "http://servername:8888"

****Note no trailing slash after the Template Hub URL ^ ****

and I then got to the next screen (ie: choosing templates) - however when I tried to reload that screen, it errored again.

Update: I can get the first stage (Choosing the library the templates live in) everytime time now for a new doc lib, if the Template Hub lives on the root of the web application ie: http://sitename/

However, once it's configured it will give a SharePoint An Unexpected Error has occurred error. ULS logs show;

 System.ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.GetMetadataForUrl(String bstrUrl, Int32 METADATAFLAGS, Guid& pgListId, Int32& plItemId, Int32& plType, Object& pvarFileOrFolder) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.GetMetadataForUrl(String bstrUrl, Int32 METADATAFLAGS, Guid& pgListId, Int32& plItemId, Int32& plType, Object& pvarFileOrFolder) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb.GetListItem(String strUrl, Boolean bFields, String[] fields at TemplateLibraryConnector.UI.TemplateHubController.GetFileVersion(String fileName) at TemplateLibraryConnector.Selector.OnItemDoubleClick(DataRowView item) at TemplateLibraryConnector.Selector.DataListItemDataBound(Object sender, DataListItemEventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataList.CreateItem(Int32 itemIndex, ListItemType itemType, Boolean dataBind, Object dataItem) at System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataList.CreateControlHierarchy(Boolean useDataSource) at System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseDataList.OnDataBinding(EventArgs e) at TemplateLibraryConnector.Selector.OnPreRender(EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.PreRenderRecursiveInternal()

Update: The above error seems to occur if the Template Hub is on a Publishing Page (so don't use a publishing site template!)

I am now able to select templates *however clicking the "Favourites" link gives an Unexpected Error has occurred and logs in ULS;
