We're trying to run a content deployment job from our development server to test and it throws this error:

The file SiteAssets/Forms/Document cannot be imported because its parent /logistics does not exist.

We're pushing root / and not the Logistics site, which is a sub-site from the root, and as far as we can tell, root doesn't have any dependencies on it. Anyone know what could cause this and how to resolve it?


  • Is it a test or production environment? – Falak Mahmood Jan 30 '12 at 14:55

Running an import of a backup of a sub-site should be done with a user account being member of the site collection administrators group, else you get some cryptic error messages and a failure of your restore operation.
