Custom site template failing to activate with 'TermSet attribute is not allowed.' error


  • Hi guys,

    I'm using Project Online.

    When trying to save a site as a Template I get an error, the .wps does appear in the Solution Gallery but is unable to activate with the following message:

    "Feature definition with Id 4f6b7b61-28c9-4506-a236-f57a33294264 failed validation, file 'bbListInstances\ElementsFields.xml', line 2751, character 178: The 'TermSet' attribute is not allowed."

    There is a term set in the Term Store Management Tool, from the farm, and I cannot see how to remove as a site feature (is it possible?)!

    The sites I have tried to save as templates are NOT using any Managed Metadata fields with the term set, but it doesn't seem to matter.  

    Anyone run into this before? Is there a solution?
