Able to Export a site and unable to import in another webapplication.


  • Hi All,

    Here i am using sharepoint 2013.

    I Exported site collection with 0(zero) errors, and trying to Import to different web application as a subsite.

    While importing i am facing below error

    Verbose: List URL: /sites/Something/DeviceChannels
    [11/25/2013 11:35:02 PM] [ListItem] [1_.000]   Error: The list item could not be added or updated because duplicate values were found in the following field(s) in the list: [Alias].

    Here i found devicechannel list but i cannot able to edit or delete.

    Any one already gone through this issue kindly guide me.

  • Hi Prabhat ,

    According to your error, it can be caused by that the column Alias of the list DeviceChannels is set as Enforce unique values.

    As you cannot able to edit or delete the list , is the list requested  special  permission?

    In my opinion, you have to set  Enforce unique values of the column Alias  to No for solving your issue.

    Please inform me freely if you have any questions.
