SharePoint 2010 Search: Does not work when I’m offline…oh now it does!!!

Normally, for Specialists that are installing their SharePoint 2010 Demo environments, so as to demonstrate custom solutions to clients, they usually do their installations onto their machines (Laptops) that in most cases are connected to their company domains. So what happens when the Specialist goes home or is at a client site is that, their SharePoint 2010 Search fails to return any results, and the wonder why this is so when not only are there no errors being registered but they also have full permissions on anything they can think of, after all, they did the installation themselves using an account with admin privileges. ;)

SharePoint 2010: Did you know that......Taxonomy feature?

Recently, a lot of people have been faced with the Taxonomy error message that says "The Taxonomy feature (Feature ID “73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C”) has not been activated" and they wonder why this is so when their installation is so clean, both on site collection features and site features, this Taxonomy feature is not listed, and the administrator ends up activating it via STSADM.

Did you know that creating a BLANK SharePoint site collection does not activate the Taxonomy feature? well now you know :), so that you can now include this step in your deployment documentations.
