Error importing .cmp file using stsadm -o import RRS feed

  • Question

  • I get following error while importing .cmp using stsadm. The file need to override the existing document if any but is unable to do so. I tried force overwrite using updateversions 2 option. But it gives the same error. Any ideas? Below is the error from the log: Progress: Importing ListItem /_catalogs/masterpage?id=20. Error: The specified name is already in use.A document cannot have the same name as another document or folder in this document library or folder.

  • Hi Anurd,

    From the error message it looks like while import is encountering a duplicate file it throwing out the error.

    Can you try runing import without specific updateversion parameter.
