In QC we are getting 0x80070055 error when provisioning a site collection with web template Document Center or Record Center template.

Did some googleing and learned this error is due to dup guid in content type. But these 2 web templates are built in web template and has not been messed with.

What are my option? Is there a way to replace the web templates in QC with production just for Doc Ctr and Record Ctr web template?

Sorry if this question seems naive. does QC stands for test environment? – Falak Mahmood Jun 18 '12 at 18:07
I meant Test environment. Can anyone shed some lights on this? – Bill Baer Jun 21 '12 at 1:31

I used PowerShell to create the Document Center site collection. However, would love to know why creating through UI still an issue?


## Configure the script
$databaseName = "SP2010_Content_DB"
$webApplicationUrl = ""
$siteCollectionUrl = ""
#siteCollectionName = "Construction Document Center"
$siteCollectionOwner1 = "domain\username"
$siteCollectionOwner2 = "domain\username2"
$siteCollectionTemplate = "BDR#0"

## Create the content database
New-SPContentDatabase -Name $databaseName -WebApplication $webApplicationUrl    

## Create the site collection
New-SPSite -URL $siteCollectionUrl -OwnerAlias $siteCollectionOwner1 -SecondaryOwnerAlias $siteCollectionOwner2 -ContentDatabase $databaseName -Name $siteCollectionName -Template $siteCollectionTemplate
