WSS intermittent File Not Found RRS feed

  • Question

  • This seems to be a very popular topic with many different way to cause it.

    We are on WSS 12.0.0.6421. Our default.master has been modified on the file system (we didn't know any better at that time). The error shows up intermittently, so it's very hard to track down. There doesn't seem to be a way to make the error happen consistently.

    We have discovered that if a user with Central Admin privs clicks on the link, the error goes away. We are also applying the April 2011 CU this weekend to bring us to WSS 12.0.0.6557.

    Here are details on the error:

    ULS

    General  Medium  Cannot get ghost document: global\default.master

    General  Medium  Unknown SPRequest error occurred. More information: 0x80070002

    General  Verbose  Application error when access /public/EditForm.aspx, Error=The file /public/_catalogs/masterpage/default.master does not exist.  at Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationRuntime.SPRequestModuleData.GetWebPartPagedata(HttpContext context, String path, Boolean threadIfFileNotFound) ...

    HTML Debug

    [FileNotFoundException]: The file /public/_catalogs/masterpage/default.master does not exist ...

    We would like to try and either figure out what is causing it or create an Event Receiver that is called when it happens and tries to clear the error.

    Any thoughts on fixing the modified file-system default.master, building the Event Receiver, applying the April 2011 CU or other solutions are very welcome.
