In both cases, the firms that setup the installations a) used the “SharePoint Wizard” to deploy the farm (which does not work) and b) installed Enterprise deployed the primary site as a SharePoint Team Site (i.e. foundation site), thus cutting out more than half of the features. Unfortunately for both, our corrections have required a complete redeployment – lost time, lost money, lost effort. Sad but true. We often say, pay us now or pay us to fix it later but that’s for another day.
Update: Now three - incredible?
