I'm creating a workflow that will create a new instance of a document set in my document library. This step implemented like this: Workflow Creation Process Workflow Creation Process

Creating the document set manually (using the SharePoint website) works fine: All documents specified as default content get generated. However, when I create the document set in the same document library using the workflow (above), the document set itself gets generated, but not the default documents specified for this content type.

Without seing your code it is hard to see where is goes wrong. Also any ULS-log entries is very helpful – Robert Lindgren Feb 11 '14 at 12:20
@RobertLindgren There's no code. Only the designed workflow (edited the question). I'll ask my domain admin for the log files. – Herdo Feb 11 '14 at 12:49
Having the same issue creating a document set manually in SP2010. Might be a problem with one of the default documents. – Thomas Carpe Dec 9 '14 at 18:18
