Using Beta 2.7 I recently exported all subsites, lists and libraries from a root site. I am now trying to import this content to the root of another site collection - same farm, different content DB.
No matter what options I select during import I am receiving the following error.
FatalError: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at System.Windows.Forms.Control.MarshaledInvoke(Control caller, Delegate method, Object args, Boolean synchronous)
at System.Windows.Forms.Control.Invoke(Delegate method, Object args)
at COB.SharePoint.Utilities.DeploymentWizard.UI.frmContentDeployer.setImportStarted(ProgressBar prgBar, SPDeploymentEventArgs e, Object data)
at COB.SharePoint.Utilities.DeploymentWizard.Core.WizardDeployment.import_Started(Object sender, SPDeploymentEventArgs e)
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Deployment.SPDeployment.OnStarted(SPDeploymentEventArgs e)
I can't seem to find anything about this error. Any advice appreciated.
I tried the same operation using 1.1 RTM and received a far more detailed exception message. In short:
Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The specified name is already in use.
A list, survery, discussion board, or document library cannot have the same name as another...in this Web site. ... --> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x81020012): The specified file
name is already in use.
In the past I'm sure any existing lists, libraries or documents have simply been overwritten. Am I wrong?
