Error while configuring an existing Managed Metadata Site column

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

We encountered an error when we are trying to configure an existing Managed Metadata Site column from single values, allowing multiple values.

The error states that the operation cannot continue due to the indexing service for multiple values.

I have searched for solutions using the KB articles of windows which explain that it is an expected problem but applies only to SP Portal Server 2003, Sharepoint 2010.

Since my Sharepoint version is 2007, it should also be applicable to my problem. 

(please refer to the attached screenshots)

Error

/Lists/Projects : Cannot change this column to allow multiple values because it is

currently being indexed.

Could someone explain about adding index to a list of column? 

Thanks for the information you can share.

Hello Jane,

The procedure you are using might be the one causing the issues that you are getting.

Try  the following:

  • First you will need to go to Central Administration, and then click on Application Management and then click on Manage service applications link.
  • In the ribbon, you will need to click on the New item and the choose Managed Metadata Service. 
  • After that provide a name for Managed Metadata Service as well as other details.
  • Specify the content type hub.

Regards,

Nicke

It does look like the content type hub is the real problem here. it does look like that you might have an index set on one of the set of altered columns. In that case you need to go to the list settings and find the list that is being affected. Now click on the indexed columns that are below the columns section. Then find the offending indexes and finally remove those. Now you need to create the new template and finally spin up the new site with that new template.
