ReportServerResources error when creating new site from custom template - SharePoint 2013

    Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to create a new sub-site based on a site template I created in the same site collection. I'm able to make my new site and save it as a template without any errors. Then, when I go and attempt to create a new site from this template, I get the following error:

    Sorry, something went wrong

    The content type name
    '$Resources:ReportServerResources,DataSourceContentTypeName;' cannot contain: \ 
    / : * ? " # % < > { } | ~ & , two consecutive periods (..), or special
    characters such as a tab.

    Correlation ID:
    5c132e9c-ac23-f049-62c7-f2fce66d871f

    Date
    and Time: 7/11/2013 2:40:40 PM

    I'll note that my template is pretty basic: calendar, task list, document library, and discussion lists with custom names. I also created the template with the "save content" box checked, if that matters.

    Thanks for the help!

  • Sorry, I was referring to the add-in on the sharepoint server.  Have you tried removing this content type via SharePointManager?  (backup you content db first)

    So, I'm not sure why I didn't try this before, but instead of trying to delete or remove this content type (which still throws an error), I just renamed it via SP Designer and removed the disallowed characters. I then re-created the site template and I can now deploy it. So, its not exactly a solution, since I still have these content types floating out there. I've actually never used the SP Manager you linked to, but I'll definitely check it out. Thanks for all the help!

  • Was this an upgraded site collection from 2010?  It looks like you have content types for reporting services.

    If memory servers, yes, this was an upgrade from a 2010 site collection. Now that you say that, I did go to Site Content types and see the following:

    $Resources:ReportServerResources,ReportServerContentTypeGroup;
     $Resources:ReportServerResources,DataSourceContentTypeName; Document
       

    $Resources:ReportServerResources,ReportBuilderContentTypeName;

    $Resources:ReportServerResources,ReportBuilderModelName;

    Document

    However, if I try and remove the "$Resources:ReportServerResources,DataSourceContentTypeName;" (the one in question), I get an error that says it can't be removed because its part of a site feature. Whats my resolution here?

    Thanks!

  • In my customers case it was an upgrade from 2007 to 2010 and ran into the same issue.  I believe the solution was to reinstall the reporting services add-in.  This is obviously different in 2013.

    Do you have access to the 2010 farm or is it long gone?

    I still have access to a 2010 farm, but the original source farm w/ collection for this 2013 farm is no longer in service.

    I still have access to a 2010 farm, but the original source farm w/ collection for this 2013 farm is no longer in service.

    I went ahead and uninstalled the reporting service from the SP SQL server, and then re-installed. However, I'm still getting the same error.
