I want to uninstall some features of the site collection on my server.
These features are on my site collection and of site or web scope. On the Sharepoint "Site Settings" -> "Manage site features" or "Site collection features" I can find them, activate or deactivate them. But in the
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES I cannot find them.
I tried the following methods:
- Using stsadm
uninstallfeatureoperation with the feature id I get the "Feature with Id ... is not installed in this farm" error.
- Using Powershell I can see them by
Get-SPFeature -Site/-Webwhen they are activated. But when I use
Uninstall-SPFeature -Identitywith the Id it cannot find the feature again.
- Using WssRemoveFeatureFromSite tool, I can successfully remove features, but not uninstalled, because after the action, they are still there, just deactivated.
- Using the FeatureAdmin tool, the same as the third one.
Does "remove" means "deactivate" actually? And anyone knows how to uninstall them? Thanks in advance!
Ps: I managed to make them disappear in the site and site collection features list by deactivating (and then delating) the solutions I used to deploy them in "Site Settings" -> "Galleries" -> "Solutions".
But Still, the feature is still there somewhere. Because when I try to redeploy (I want to uninstall it because a mysterious error persists) it with the same name, I get a "Ambiguous match found" error.
