Setting up Pivotal 6 on SharePoint 2007 Standard

According to Pivotal, setting up Pivotal 6 on SharePoint 2007 Standard should work out of the box. Well I guess if by out of the box you mean having to go into your SharePoint server and run a script and edit some XML files. Then yes out of the box. Well we are currently working on setting up our new Pivtoal 6 environment so we can FINALLY get rid of IE6!!! That will be one of the best days of my life when we can finally get rid of that virus magnet they call a browser. But that’s besides the point. This post is a quick how-to fix an issue when you’re attempting to create a new pivotal site in SharePoint 2007.

If you are running into this error when attempting to create a new Pivotal Site collection on SharePoint:

Feature '2510d73f-7109-4ccc-8a1c-314894deeb3a' is not installed in this farm, and can not be added to this scope.

The fix is as follows:

1. To register the ReportListTemplate feature on the SharePoint server. Runn the following in the command prompt

pushd %programfiles%\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\bin

stsadm -o installfeature -filename ReportListTemplate\feature.xml -force
stsadm -o activatefeature -filename ReportListTemplate\feature.xml -url TheURLofYourAdminSite


2. Comment out the following lines from the onet.xml files

<!--<Feature ID="D250636F-0A26-4019-8425-A5232D592C09" />
<Feature ID="00BFEA71-DBD7-4F72-B8CB-DA7AC0440130" />
<Feature ID="065C78BE-5231-477e-A972-14177CC5B3C7" />—>

Which can be located at the following two locations:
“C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\SiteTemplates\PivotalSmartClientPortalBlankSite2\xml\”


“C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12"\TEMPLATE\SiteTemplates\PivotalSmartClientPortalTeamSite2\xml”

This way now the Pivotal sites will not try to load features that are not installed in the standard version.
