SP2010 Rest services ListData.svc not working in RTM

April 26, 2010

If you want to use the ListData.svc / Rest service in the SP2010 RTM you might get this error:

“Could not load type ‘System.Data.Services.Providers.IDataServiceUpdateProvider’ from assembly ‘System.Data.Services, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′”

Then install this update, which Microsoft forgot to install with SP2010 RTM

“An update is available that provides additional features and improvements for ADO.NET Data Services in the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2”

Powershell and SP2010 (2) – Installing a solution

April 6, 2010

After reading this blogpost: WaitForWSPJob tool by MIchel Barneveld i had an idea, in SP2010 we can use Powershell to do the waiting because we can access the OM directly.

$file = Get-ChildItem $solution
$solutionID = $file.Name;

$farm = Get-SPFarm

$sol = $farm.Solutions[$solutionID]


   Write-Host -f Green "Going to uninstall $solutionID"

   if( $sol.Deployed -eq $TRUE ) {

        if ( $url -eq $null ) {
            Uninstall-SPSolution -Identity $solutionID -Confirm:0
        else {
            Uninstall-SPSolution -Identity $solutionID -Confirm:0 -Webapplication $url

        while( $sol.JobExists ) {
            Write-Host " waiting for retraction."
            sleep 1

    Write-Host -f Green "Going to Remove $solutionID"
    Remove-SPSolution -Identity $solutionID -Force -Confirm:0

    Write-Host -f red $solutionID is deleted from this Farm

The script will wait for any execution jobs:

Download the powershell script solution.ps1
Update (newer version) :

SP2010 and Remote Blob Storage (RBS)

April 2, 2010

Was looking into the RBS thing for SP2010 (RC) and this manual by Todd Klindt was perfect and spot on.

I tested this on our SP2010 RC setup with SQL 2008 and presto: The SQL 2008 FILESTREAM is now a RBS provider for SP2010.
