Multiple Navigation Nodes Problem and Navigation Deadlock in SharePoint 2010

Symtoms:
Issue happens after  August 2012 CU installed for SharePoint Server 2010.

After publishing a new page the site load times start to increase dramatically or page requests don’t finish loading at all. You will see the infamous “An expected error has occurred“-error or if the callstack is enabled and custom errors are turned off in the web.config (CallStack=”true” / customErrors mode=”Off”) you will see a “Request timed out.” error-message.

About Sorting problem on Picture Library in Sharepoint 2010 after installing Dec 2011 CU

Hello Everyone,

We have a problem for sorting on Picture Libraries in Sharepoint 2010 . I have tested the issue SPS2010 + SP1 + Dec 2011 CU and can be easly reproducable.
The problem is when you click “Column” links or click popup window Ascending or Descending links nothing happens .Thats mean you can not able to sort items in Picture Libraries.
As far as i know it was working on SP1 level . The problem has occuring after CU upgrade.

Does any fix ? Not yet .(12/03/2012) I am expecting but not sure in June CU 2012 will fix the issue.
So until then you can use fallowing workaround to fix issue.

It is very simple wsp file created as site scope that dispatching postback events on picture libraries by using Jquery.
You can download WSP or Source project form Codeplex.
http://spssampleprojects.codeplex.com/releases/view/84054

For installing solution:

1) Download “PictureLibraryFix.wsp” file to c: drive of your sharepoint server

2) Open a Sharepoint Management Shell and

3) Type fallowing for adding solution to sharepoint

4)Type fallowing for installing solution:

Unable to complete upgrate after installing Aug 2011 Cu for Sharepoint 2010 and getting error of Exception: localStoragePath

Every upgrade attemp is one of challage for IT team. So this time we are working on a problem which is occured after Aug 2011 Cumulative Update.
the symptom is Sharepoint Configuration Wizard can not able to complete and finishing with failure.

First of all once we check the PSCDiagnostics logs we could not able to find something useful:

Configuration of SharePoint Products failed.  Configuration must be performed in order for this product to operate properly.  To diagnose the problem, review the extended error information located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS\PSCDiagnostics_10_7_2011_9_55_26_860_989474110.log, fix the problem, and run this configuration wizard again

Cool but it say nothing. So we peek that let check “upgrade” logs …
And see some error. LocalStoragePath. What is actually LocalStoragePath and why we are getting this error while upgrading. It is definitly something wrong with search db.

[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [ERROR] [10/7/2011 10:05:49 AM]: Exception: localStoragePath
[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [INFO] [10/7/2011 10:05:49 AM]: SearchAdminDatabase Name=Fast_Query_SSA_DB_3a64d349dc2249679a8be
[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [ERROR] [10/7/2011 10:05:49 AM]:    at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchApi.AssertParameter(String parameterName, Boolean condition)
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchApi.UpdateAdminComponent(String serverName, Guid serverId, String localStoragePath, Boolean standalone, Nullable`1 settingsInRegistry)
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Upgrade.SearchAdminDatabaseSequence.InitializeTopologyBasedOn2007Settings()
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Upgrade.SearchAdminDatabaseSequence.PostUpgrade()
   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeSession.Upgrade(Object o, Boolean bRecurse)

The problem in our scenario is some how psconfig can not update the topology, possible cause for this may be service name changes may be an old conf. backup restored or even more the server name has changed.  

Resolution

1. Checked the Upgrade error log and notice following information
[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [INFO] [10/7/2011 10:05:49 AM]: SearchAdminDatabase Name=Fast_Query_SSA_DB_3a64d349dc2249679a8be…

2.Use Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication cmdlet and list all search service applications. we try to delete the Search Service Application. Unable to delete the service Application through GUI hence tried successfully with following Powershell command.

$ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity 4e6d0c5c-f47b-425e-a637-e8a44aca12ae
$ssa.Delete()  

We had 2 search application more so we deleted all of them .

3. Run the configuration wizard

4. created a new SSA to after configuration wizard has run.
