Download DXA from: https://github.com/RWS/dxa-web-application-java/releases/tag/DXA_2.2

An error occurred while importing DXA publications with the command below:

'.\cms-import.ps1 -importType all-publications -cmsUrl "https://tridion.xxxxx.xxx" -cmsUserName "******" -cmsUserPassword "*******"'

Error message:

2021/11/18 14:09:23 <80> [Information] Transactional import failed at 11/18/2021 2:09:23 PM(+0000). No changes were committed to Tridion Sites Content Manager.

However, it succeed when I tried the 4th time without changing anything. Any ideas on what leads to this error?

"Unresolved dependencies" ... do you have the three specific error messages - I wonder if each import brought in a dependency that was required until all dependencies where in place? The only other reason I could see it failing intermittently would be

  • access issue (network) access issue
  • content porter already running
    • perhaps it was running as a service in the background the first three times

    • but the error doesn't really lean to that

  • thank you, Dylan. The first 3 times failed with the same error mentioned above in Error message.

  • As you can see in the log, the import is done transactional, meaning that if something goes wrong, the entire import is rolled back. So, I don't expect each attempt to change the state of the system. I cannot explain the observed behavior; I have never seen this happening myself, despite having observed thousands of imports.
