After selecting your items to import, right-click on each Publication that is now checked and select "Selected children only." This will stop Content Porter from importing the Publication itself (along with its metadata):

You can use “Cross Copier” feature of Power Tool to copy items across publications. For more see the URL http://sdltridionworld.com/community/extension_overview/powertools.aspx Below URL have some great thought by Bart which certainly be beneficial for you - How to move items from one publication to other

As it is not possible to copy across publications, Just By renaming the publications for your operations you can do this. Mapping xml is also the option for this but renaming seems to be more comfartable. 1.Rename 04a --> temp 2.Create Content Porter Package 3.Rename temp --> 04a 4.Rename 04e --> temp 5.Import package in to temp 6.Rename temp -->...

There are some guidelines for configuring Content Porter for first time use in the SDL Tridion Live Content document here (login required). If you are using IIS 6 then you will need to change the metabase property called AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed If you are using IIS 7 then you need to add the 'maxAllowedContentLength' attribute: <security> <...

You are correct that Content Porter permissions are based on the access permissions in the CMS. So I think you assume correctly that there is no easy/supported way to limit this. If I were to try and change this, I would consider playing with security settings in IIS on the ImportExportService application under the CME website. You may be able to add some ...

Like premkumar subramanian's answer says, the logs raise an error on saving a publication item. Try importing with the Dependency Filters set to exclude everything. The dependency filter setting makes sure only those items which you select (the pages) are imported. This also means you need to make sure that all dependencies of the pages you are importing ...

You might first need to try the following. If you are running Content porter 2009 SP1 with Tridion 2011 SP1, you should consider the hotfix indicated HERE. Check if your Content porter server is started in your content manager box Initiate content porter from the content manager box (from the above I understand that it is Windows 2008 R2), you should not ...

You mention cd_licenses.xml but the TDSE object is specified in your error message, which sounds like it's from the Content Manager and you have also tagged Content Porter which, again, is on the Content Manager side. Did you also renew your license.xml file on your Content Manager? From the online documentation (requires login) cd_licenses.xml contains ...

As noted, once they have Content Porter available to them, what they can do with it is primarily controlled by their permissions and rights in Tridion. I'd look at controlling who can install Content Porter. Even though it is available as a click-once install via the GUI, you could probably prevent some users from installing it via a group policy. (Or ...

As Nuno says, this feature is not in there. I've not tried using the old Content Porter. An alternative approach using Excel and the CoreService is described here by Ryan Durkin: http://blog.building-blocks.com/creating-custom-pages-using-the-core-service-in-sdl-tridion-2011 This involves a lot more code than your previous approach with Content Porter ...

Is there free space on the server? CP is first uploading packages into it's own location. Can you check if there're files created? It's under \Tridion\Content Porter\temp Also, if there are any files - please delete it. I once saw a problem when there were too many files and windows couldn't provide unique filename anymore. Also, please explore the Tridion ...

One nifty trick you can do is temporarily make your destination publication a child of the source by updating the Blueprint inheritance, such that all items in the source pub become inherited. Then select the items inside your new temporary child pub, right-click, copy/paste. The items copied will be local to your child pub. After this, go back to your ...

In this situation, I generally recommend (do read the disclaimer ;) ) the following as a release / content refresh cycle: Ensure that the BluePrints really are the same in terms of inheritance and Publication Titles; Content Port system items from Dev to Stage from the top of the BluePrint down in separate Content Porter packages in the following ...

Indeed it is not a usual scenario, here some options. CM Side If you don't care about loosing the data in a lower environment, you can just restore a full database backup from a higher environment. You can rely on your database technology to synchronize data for instance SQL Server Integration Services. For this option you will need to get familiar with ...

The error message says that saving the Publication was not successful. But your objective was to port the pages. Pls. make sure that you selected only those items which you wanted to content port.

The Import Export API was introduced in Tridion 2013 SP1. Previous versions have to make use of Content Porter. See also this documentation page (requires login)

Looking at the stack trace, I see "Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel". The client computer you are trying to run the Template Builder and Content Porter from needs to trust the SSL certificate presented by the Content Manager. If you access the Content Manager site from the client computer using Internet Explorer, do ...

This is mentioned in Elena's SDL Tridion World article on 'Using Content Porter 2009 SP1 for DTAP' In the 'Troubleshooting' section, Elena recommends you "check for circular references and import the items with least dependencies first". Can you try importing items at a more granular level, with those items that are depended on (Schemas, Keywords, etc.) ...

Some years ago I had to deal with a scenario where I had to automate the export of the results of a Search Folder (this was before Content Porter supported this), so I wrote a library to create the CP export (& import) configuration files based on a webdav URL. This was written in 2009/2010, so it's fully based on the deprecated Business Connector - I ...

What version of Content Porter are you trying to work with? If you're using Content Porter 2009 SP1 with Tridion 2011 SP1 HR1, then you will have this issue. CP 2009 SP1 is only good up to Tridion 2011 GA. For Tridion 2011 SP1, you need to be on CP 2009 SP2. Is it possible you grabbed the wrong installable from your company's archive? The CP 2009 SP1 ...

If you want to sync your Production environment back to Dev and Test and need it to be an exact copy, then the best thing you can do is make a backup of the Production CMS database and restore that on the Dev envrionment. The only thing you will miss at that point is the what is actually published (the published state is there, but the actual files on your ...

This appears to be similar to the SDL HTTP 401.1 error message might occur when accessing Template Builder Custom Page Knowledgebase article in which it recommends using 'Anonymous Authentication'. There are a couple things that you could check on top of what you have listed.... 1.Check that the 'Client' folder also has just 'Anonymous Authentication' ...

The simplest thing to try is doing a non-transactional import. The message seems to be indicating that the problem is to do with the transaction. If you really need to do transactional imports (we managed for years without them), then I'd suggest making smaller imports until you get down to a scope that succeeds. In any case, trying to identify the ...

This is how I would go about resolving this: Write a CoreService app that looks through every component searching for fields containing a TcmUri; Convert that TcmUri to a WebDavUrl by loading the target object and getting it's WebDavUrl (some smart caching suggested here) Save/Update the components (probably before step #1) make sure my code still works ...

The Tridion security model is enforced on the back-end, not per application, so what you're asking for (allowing a user to have a different security access based on the application he uses) is not possible (and this is a good thing). If the user must export an item, then the user must be able to read it. If a user must import an item, then the user must be ...

I have noticed that there are two different Tridion.Common.dll files. One exists in the GAC (if you are working on a tridion server), and one exists in the Content Porter installation folder (start->sdl tridion->content porter program folder) You'll see that the dll in the GAC has version 6.1.0.25, while the one in the CP folder has version 2.0.139.0. In ...

In my experience with Content Porter it's nearly always something to do with Keywords... Double check your keywords and schemas have been imported into the correct level - (I'm assuming when you say you broke the export/import into chunks you mean schema/keywords, then design, then content, then website levels etc.)... Check you don't have any local ...

I've seen this error when you are trying to import using one version of Content Porter but the Content Porter version on the server is different. Making sure these are matched up solved the problem.
