We did a migration from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint foundation 2010 using database attach method. The web site is running fine but I am not able to create any new sub sites using Team Site template. I am able to create a blank site though. It gives an unexpected error with different correlation ID every time.

This is full error on the SP Shell

New-SPWeb : Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

  • @ChandraShekhar: That did not solve my issue. I am able to use Team Site template for creating a new site collection on the same web application but not for creating sub sites. – Chaitanya Jun 5 '14 at 13:52
