I have a sharepoint 2010 production environment "SQLSErver, WFE & Domain Controller" in office and ditto virtual environment at home (3 machines)...ive taken the back up of sharepoint 2010 content database from office and created new web application and mount it. Working fine when i access my portal.
When I log in through SharePoint 2010 Designer with my credentials I cannot check-in/check-out the master page as it shows "SHAREPOINT\system" in modified by column. Since SID's of domain has changed (i know) and have rights of FULL control on the whole portal as i can edit page...how can I take the ownership of this master page and do my check-in and check-outs to make changes. Getting the following error when I try to check-in or modify.
The file "_catalogs/masterpage/myportal.master" is not checked out.
In Designer I get
Server Error: the file "http://myportal.myorg.com/_catalogs/masterpage/myportal.master" is checked out for editing by (unknown)
I am trying through "Site setting->MasterPage Gallery" and "Discard CheckOut" but same error..and page state is showing "Pending".
How to resolve this issue.
