SharePoint: Content Deployment Errors

Just a quicknote – I have recently been doing a lot with stsadm import and export, and have experienced intermittent errors, such as “FatalError: The element ‘FieldTemplate’ in namespace ‘urn:deployment-manifest-schema’ has invalid child element ‘Field’ in namespace’. “. It turns out that this was a sharepoint bug – fortunately a hotfix is available at

Also another quicknote: when using stsadm import and export, or the content deployment api, you will get errors if the user you are running as does not have rights on the appropriate content database.
