Unable to Activate Site Feature

  Asked By: Ciera    Date: Apr 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1858

I am trying to activate a site feature called Lending List Instances on
a site but it keeps saying that the specified name is already in use,
which it isn't. When I tried to active the feature, it created the List
Library on the All Site Content page but the feature does not turn.

What exactly is the feature  trying to do when activated? By the name I
suspect it might be trying to create some lists, are you sure none of
the list  names it's trying to create already exist?

Postive. I have used SharePoint Designer and All Site Contet to look for
other lists that might have these names but done other exist
