Symptoms

In Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002, when you try to import a Site Deployment Object (.sdo) file, the operation fails, and you may receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Error ID: -2147352567
Source File:
Source Method: .Net SqlClient Data Provider
Source Line: 0
Description: Cannot insert duplicate key row in object '##impNodesToDelete' with unique index 'PK_impNodesToDelete'. The statement has been terminated.
This problem occurs when all the following conditions are true:
  • You are trying to deploy a site.
  • You click to select the Delete all existing container contents when replacing a container check box.
  • The deleted items are included in the .sdo file.

Cause

This problem occurs because Content Management Server 2002 automatically adds the items to be deleted in the SDO package to the ##impNodesToDelete table. Additionally, the PrepareNodesForDelete stored procedure tries to add the same items to the ##impNodesToDelete table because you clicked to select the Delete all existing container contents when replacing a container check box. However, the PrepareNodesForDelete stored procedure does not verify that these items have already been added to the table. Therefore, this behavior causes the duplicate key error.

Workaround

To work around this problem, import the SDO file two times. The first time, click to clear the Delete all existing container contents when replacing a container check box to make sure that the requested items are deleted. The second time, click to select the Delete all existing container contents when replacing a container check box. The problem will not occur because the items to be deleted are no longer in the database.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Content Management Server 2002.
