    I thought you could not convert from claims to classic mode?

    If you do that then assign to a new object like this:
    $checkcba = get-spwebapplication “http://yoursiteurl”
    I think it still returns 1

    I had a complete site running claims until someone tried to switch it to classic.
    I have trouble getting the site back up. The site works, but some services are damaged beyond repair.

    I cannot get the managed metadata working again .. .

    Any tips?
