Enable Taxonomy Feature

If you like to use the taxonomy feature in SharePoint 2010 and try to create a Managed Metadata Column in a list or document library you may encounter the problem that this feature is not enabled by default:

At this time (Beta2 & RC) you have to activate this feature using PowerShell:

List all Features with the name *Tax*:

PS C:\> Get-SPFeature | where {$_.displayname -like "*tax*"}
