I want to enable BLOB on my sharepoint 2010 portal. Portal has two servers: 1. SQL Server 2008 R2 64bit 2. Front-End Server (Windows 2008 64Bit)

I tried steps on this url but when I execute $rbss.Enable() command, I get this error:

 Exception calling "Enable" with "0" argument(s): 
 "Must declare the scalar variable "@RbsId"." 
 At line:1 char:13
 $rbss.Enable ()
 CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [],
 FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException

Is there a solution for this error?

Did $rbss.Installed() returned True as stated in the site you are referring.. – Vivek Kumbhar Oct 22 '10 at 10:07
Yes $rbss.Installed() returned True. – mrt Oct 22 '10 at 10:22
Did you check rbs_install_Log.txt and look for error in psconfig file specific to RBS – Vivek Kumbhar Oct 22 '10 at 10:48
I found this error in rbs_install_log.txt: Executing op: ActionStart(Name=ProcessComponents,Description=Updating component registration,) Info 2769. The installer has encountered an unexpected error. The error code is 2769. Custom Action CreateFilesNoUI did not close 21 MSIHANDLEs. – mrt Oct 22 '10 at 11:35

This was a permissions problem for me. I ran it as a local admin with farm admin access, and it worked.

I tried with local administrator then I get this error :The local farm is not accessible. Cmdlets with FeatureDependencyId are not registered. – mrt Oct 22 '10 at 10:22
