    • I'm attempting export and import to a test environment
      1. What kind of preupgrade/configuration/database testing needs to be done on the 2008 Server? 
      2. Should the design package be downloaded to the import server or to local computer?

    • I have a search site collection and when I import the design package, I am getting the following error,
      InstallError            : System.Management.Automation.MethodInvocationExceptio
                                n: Exception calling "Install" with "3" argument(s): 
                                "An event receiver has canceled the request." ---> 
                                Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: An event receiver 
                                has canceled the request. ---> 
                                System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: <nativeh
                                event receiver has canceled the request.
                                   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalC
                                lass.PutFile(String bstrUrl, String 
                                bstrWebRelativeUrl, Object punkFile, Int64 cbFile, 
                                Object punkSPFileMgr, Object punkFFM, Int64 
                                PutFileOpt, String bstrCreatedBy, String 
      which event receiver in the search site can causing this? the same design package worked well for publishing site. I have checked the search site, the publishing infrastructure feature is enabled as well.

    • When it gets to "[Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.DesignPackage]::Export" on Export, it throws this error: "Error copying temporary solution file to solutions gallery".
    • Do you have permissions on the solution gallery?

    • Hi,
      The script seems to be throwing some errors when I try to use them : it seems that it cannot copy the temporary solution file to the solutions gallery ... do you have any idea what could cause this ?
    • Too few details to answer this question.
