A SharePoint Document In-Place Restore Operation Fails
Article ID: SP0011 A SharePoint document in-place restore operation fails.
A SharePoint document in-place restore operation fails when the operation attempts to restore sub-sites. The following error message appears in the import.log file:
FatalError: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
When the operation attempts to restore sub-sites, it cannot restore ghost pages, and so the operation fails. (Ghost pages are the files and views that reside on the front-end web server.)
- To resolve this error, add the additional setting bImportSkipGhostPages, and set its value to 1, so that the operation does not attempt to restore ghost pages.
- Run the operation again.
