SharePoint Content Deployment

Recently I have deployed sharepoint content from 32 bit window 2003 to 64 bit window 2008, here are some pitfall I ran into:

  • Target SharePoint server has to be configred to accept "incoming content deployment jobs" and check "Do not require encryption" if SharePoint Central Admin site is not using SSL;
  • Target SharePont site collection has to use blank template;
  • Deploymentmanifest.xsd (under 12 hives\Template\xml on Target SharePoint Server) has to add the followings (this only requires for 32 to 64 bit mix)

<xs:attribute name="AllowAutomaticASPXPageIndexing" type="xs:boolean" use="optional" >
<xs:attribute name="ASPXPageIndexMode" type="xs:string" use="optional" > < xs:attribute name="NoCrawl" type="xs:boolean" use="optional" >
< xs:attribute name="CacheAllSchema" type="xs:boolean" use="optional" >
