Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, you try to migrate content from one site collection to another site collection. To do this, you use SharePoint Central Administration to create a content deployment path and a content deployment job. When you run the content deployment job to deploy the content from the source site collection to the destination site collection, the status of the operation appears as Failed. You receive the following error message:
Content deployment job 'Remote import job for job with sourceID = ID' failed. The exception thrown was 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException' : 'A folder with the name _catalogs/masterpage/Forms/Page Layout already exists.'"
This behavior occurs if the destination site collection does not use the Blank Site template. For example, this behavior occurs if the destination site collection uses the Team Site template.
When you migrate content from one site collection to another site collection, make sure that the destination site collection uses the Blank Site template.
For more information about how to manage content deployment paths, jobs, and settings, see SharePoint Central Administration Help.
