Content Deployment Errors

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello, We're trying to set up OOTB content deployment on MOSS2007. Of course we are running into trouble. We keep getting these errors: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.GetFileAsByteArray(String bstrUrl, String bstrWebRelativeUrl, Boolean bHonorLevel, Byte iLevel, OpenBinaryFlags grfob) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.GetFileAsByteArray(String bstrUrl, String bstrWebRelativeUrl, Boolean bHonorLevel, Byte iLevel, OpenBinaryFlags grfob) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.FileSerializer.SaveFile(SerializationInfo info, ExportObjectManager objectManager, ExportDataFileManager fileManager, SPExportSettings settings, SPWeb parentWeb, Boolean isGhosted, String setupPath, String setupPathUser, Byte setupPathVersion, String webRelativeFileUrl, Int32 size, Byte level) 97 errors like this one. While some of the files differ, most of the files are default.aspx that it is complaining about. It looks like it is throwing an error for every subsite's default.aspx page, plus a few extras. Here is some background. I am trying to export from a Dev server to a Unit testing server for proof of concept. We will be pushing automated publishing on production which is already live. This means I can't purge the database for testing on the destination because we can't do that when we int

Feature Deployment of Inherited Content Type

I'm encountering a strange behaviour and I'm not sure of the root cause or solution.  I have a custom content type that inherits from form with a content type id of: 0x0101010056138C818DD3564C95CA65FF3C468A86.  This was created in from the SharePoint UI. I'm attempting to deploy an inherited content type from as a feature.  The feature activates fine but no content type appears in the UI.  From that point forward I get the following error in the UI if I attempt to create a child content type of 0x0101010056138C818DD3564C95CA65FF3C468A86.    "The local device name is already in use. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070055) "  In the logs I see the following error 3 times: Failed to find the parent content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c95ca65ff3c468a86" for content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c95ca65ff3c468a8601". At this point I uninstall the feature but still can't delete the original custom content type because it says the content type is in use.  Using the SP Manager tool from codeplex shows me that the child content type is still associated with the parent despite the fact that it never showed up in the UI! Failed to find the parent content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c95ca65ff3c468a86" for content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c9

MOSS 2007 Content Deployment Error

I have trouble with a staging environment that I recently set up.  I went through the error logs and finally got the staging environment functioning without errors, but previous to working through those errors, we successfully made a content deployment path and job and ran it.  Now, the Destination central Admin is giving permissions issues.  I changed and restarted some services and some component services..  Are there any specific things I should check related specifically to content deployment as far as services on the server? 



Either the URL for the destination Web application is not valid, or you do not have permissions to the Central Administration site on the destination server farm.

Error details: The remote Web service request failed with this message : 'Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.'.

Content Deployment in MOSS 2007


I am trying to Deploy the content from one site collection to another site collection in a different server.

Content Type Deployment Error


I got this error

Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': The content type with Id [GUID] defined in feature [GUID] was found in the current site collection or in a subsite.

Any ideas???


Content type deployment


I wanted to deploy the content type at site collection level on feature activation.

We have one admin site collection where all the contnet type and sitecolumns are stored. When the feature is activated the content type and site column from admin site collection has to be copied to the site collection where the feature is activated.

Is this a good plan to go with? or are there any better options available?

One other requirement is that, if the content type at admin site collection is updated, the changes need to be updated in other site collection also. Is there a way to update a content type which is already used in a doc library and has data associated with it? We saw that it is not possible to delete when there is data associated with it.

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)



I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?


SharePoint 2007 Content Deployment Word Document URLs being changed


We created an application that leverages on SPExport and SPImport.

We noticed that when we export/import site, the links on the word documents pointing to same application on the target site seems to get truncated url, the url parameters (ie ?param1=a&param2=b) are truncated.

also the host header seems to get updated ie(http://my.shop.com/path1/path2 turns to like (http://hostheader/path1/path2) which is causing broken links.

need some help/advice/ suggestion.


Thanks a lot

Did New-SPContentDatabase and completed with errors, no lists or content on site


Hello team,

I know I am missing something here, and I have searched, but I cannot seem to find the missing piece.  I did a new-spcontentdatabase to connect my sp2007 05 db to my sp2010 08 db environment.  It went through and went to 100% and then said it was completed, but with errors.

I looked through the error log and it was all 'could not parse date/time string; string not recognized'.  So I figured I would not be overly worried about it.  Now here is where my delusional thoughts come in and I need help.  I had assumed (yeah i know 'assumed') when I created a site under the new web app it would populate all the lists and everything from the content database.  It obviously didn't, how do I get that?

SharePoint 2010 Content deployment jobs + Tags & Comments



I am facing some technical challenge in SharePoint 2010 while moving content from Authoring to production, here is the scenario.

1. We enabled Socializations features like tagging, rating and commenting on production content (pages).
2. There is a authoring and production environments for authoring and production purposes
3. Content is being moved from Authoring to Production using SharePoint 2010 Content deployment jobs

Now the problem:

Content that is there on the production allows end users to comment, rate, tag. However, when I run content publishing jobs, how rated tagged information will be updated to the updated page.

In our case, pages will be updated with slight changes or new page can be created. For new pages it is not a issue because new social collaboration information can be stored in Social database. However, what happens to modified/updated pages tags, rating and commenting information? How SharePoint 2010 conent deployment jobs handle this issue?

Please let me know resolutions or pointers if someone faced similar problems.
