Description

Please wait...

Unable to create a site based on the Records Center template. The following error is written to ULS logs on SharePoint application server: “Failed to find the XML file at location ’12\Template\Features\QuestAdmin\Feature.xml'”

Cause

In the APP_server log file there are a lot of errors related to missing features that are not related to Quest:
Failed to find the XML file at location '12TemplateFeaturesDisplayStocksfeature.xml'
Failed to find the XML file at location '12TemplateFeaturesPhoneBookfeature.xml'

And it's actually not surprising because APP_server is not WFE and XML files should not be there.

None of these error messages cause the issue.

Resolution

There is the following error in ULS logs:

"Records Center Provisioning for http://SharePoint/sites/rc failed. Unable to cast object of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ErrorWebPart' to type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ListViewWebPart'."

The following solution might help: "Creating a Records Center on a seperate web application in a medium farm fails with "unknown error""
