"Value does not fall within the expected range" error when configuring SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Platform: Windows Server 2008 R2 x64
    MSS: Sharepoint 3.0 SP2 64bit

    To install TFS on a server, we need:
    1. Install and config IIS.
    2. Install SQL Server
    3. Install and config MSS
    4. Install and config TFS.

    As you can see,
    I am now at step 3.
    This means NO TFS has been installed on that box.

    I need to run the following command to config the MSS.

    stsadm.exe -o extendvs -exclusivelyusentlm -url http://WSSServerName:80 -ownerlogin Domain\UserName -owneremail "admin@localhost" -sitetemplate sts -description "Default Web Site"

    where:

    WSSServerName
    is the name of the server that is running SharePoint Products and Technologies. Domain\UserName is the domain and user name of the account that you specified earlier in this topic as the database access account. admin@localhost is the e-mail address where administrative alerts are sent. Default Web Site is a brief description of the site. 

    Modify parameters above to appropriate variables, and then press Enter.
    "Value does not fall within the expected range" will be shown and the web application would not be created.



    any help will be appreciate.

    Thanks,
    Kylin

  • Hi,

     

    Based on my research, this issue happens when creating a web application and telling it to use an existing application pool which is already configured to use the ApplicationPoolIdentity identity type, in both the UI and stsadm command line. If you choose to use an existing application pool which is not of type ApplicationPoolIdentity, or if you create a new application pool that is not of type ApplicationPoolIdentity, then it works in both the UI and command line.

     

    The workaround are:

     

    1.       Create the Application Pool using SharePoint Administration in the UI.

    2.       Or have the administrator explicitly specify an application pool which does not use the "Application pool identity type".

     

    Thanks!

  • Note to All:

    As is clear from the above post, in fact this question has nothing to do with TFS.

    People writing questions on TFS will have their posts moved to Off-topic as before because there is a set of forums in existence for TFS users. 

    In order to make posts clear for poor, hard-working moderators, if you have a case where TFS has not been installed and your question is purely about either WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007 installation ("MSS" stands for Microsoft Search Server not SharePoint), please do not mention "TFS" at all in it.

  • Hi Rock

    Thank you very much.
    I managed to create a web application via SharePoint Admin UI.
    I also created the site collection via UI.
    Now it works..
