SharePoint Error: Failed to activate Features.... RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I created a site collection in Central Administration.  I open my site and go into site setting to activate some features and I'm getting the following errors:

    Office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features
    Failed to activate feature 'LocalSiteDirectorySettingsLink' (ID: e978b1a6-8de7-49d0-8600-09a250354e14) at scope 'http://oskmosst01'.

    Office SharePOint Server Standard Site Collection Feature
    Failed to activate feature 'LocalSiteDirectorySettingsLink' (ID: e978b1a6-8de7-49d0-8600-09a250354e14) at scope 'http://oskmosst01'.

    I get errors on any feature that isn't activated under Site Administration: Site Features and Site Collection Administration:  Site Collection Features.

    I'm really stumped on this one.  Does anyone know what is happening or causing this?

    Thanks,

    Jessica

  • Hello,
    Please go to  Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Web Application Features    and activate your features.

    Than you should be able to access your features at site level.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

  • iisreset worked for me too. Recycling the app pool probably would have done it too. Must be some corruption in processes. May need to cycle the pools more frequently.
