Missing “I like it” and Tags on SharePoint 2010


While working on Profiles and Metadata Service Federation between 2 farms I noticed that the “I like IT” button was missing in the child farm. After spending significant amount of time troubleshooting the Linking I found that I had missed to select the below checkboxes after creating the connection to “Service Application” in the destination farm.

The selection of checkboxes is necessary on the “Child Farm” proxy connection. This can be evoked by clicking on the “Properties” button with the focus enabled on the Proxy Connection.
