Error during site restore: "The given key was not present in the dictionary." RRS feed

  • Question

  • While restoring a site with a .cmp file I got the following error:  "Error occurred while importaing the web "SITE_URL".  The given key was not present in the dictionary."

    Can anyone tell me what that means please?  I took a look around the restored site and it seems to be okay.  I can't help but worry about the ramifications of that error down the line.  Wondering if I should delete the site and try again.

  • Hi run4it,

     

    Maybe you can solve this issue by following these steps:

    1.       Open up "Active Directory Users and Computer"

    2.       Select "Advanced features" from the "View" menu

    3.       Right-click the relevant account and select "Properties"

    4.       Select the "Securities" Tab

    5.       Scroll down and select "Authenticated users" in the "Group or user names:" field

    6.       Allow "Read" permissions in the "Permissions for Account Operators" field just below

    7.       Hit Ok

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Peng Lei

  • This could be because of any of the below reasons:
    - Because of some corrupt security setting on a document library
    - Permission level is not created in the target environment
    - Custom field used in the document lib/list is not installed in the target environment

  • Peng Lei - I don't know where you are referring to go make this change.  Also, I am reluctant to make setting changes without and understanding of what I'm changing.  Please clarify.

  • Raj, thank you for responding. 

    - I am not sure how to investigate if anything is wrong with the security settings on my document libraries. They look correct.

    - The target environment is empty with just Full Control provided to me (the collection administrator) until I import the .cmp file. There are no permissions set up yet, or any custom fields.

    - I read the KB article and am wondering if this could be the issue.  There is a look up column (and associated list that it pulls from) in my site I'm restoring.  Is it possible that the library portion of the site being restored is being restored before the list used in its lookup column is restored?  How does a restore know what "order" to restore things in?  The odd thing is that I practiced restoring this .cmp file on a test site on my development server and did not get this error.
