  • I have done importing and never had this issue.

    You can verify your dashboard file (ddwx) first, maybe got corrupted while moving.

    Next you can check the log files to have a detailed description of the error or why it is failing.

    Next you can verify the destination sharepoint site whether you have rights to the 2 content lists etc.

  • the ddwx file is not corrupted because import worked with me on different site collection on same server, but the problem resides on case of different servers.

    and the user I'm using is SharePoint admin with full permissions. and nothing were recorded in the log.

    could you help please

  • Something has to recorded in the log files, please mention which log files are you checking...

    Looks like a long shot to me, but try shifting your file from c:\ root to some other folder and check rights on the ddwx file. I assume you would be using Window Server 2008 so maybe just check it.
