SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Yesterday, I was able to run some script upload and update MMS type columns via script.

Today, the same script unable to get hold of the taxonomy store. I can see the whole tree from any site collection (site setting > term store mgmt). Why then following ps not working? REALLY FRUSTRATED WITH SHAREPOINT LACK OF DOCUMENTATION.

$site = "http://portal.company.com/legal"
$session = get-sptaxonomysession -site $site

if ($session.TermStores.Count > 0)
    $ts = $session.TermStores[0]
    Write-Host "Term Stores not found"

Adding more spicy. When running the script from the app server it worked. –  M. Todd Jun 28 '12 at 20:26
