We are trying to deploy our DEV to our QA environment but we are facing issues.
We are using SF 5.1, and our DEV works exactly as we want it to.
To Sync to our QA environment, we first copied our custome code we have created in VS.NET 2010 from DEV to QA, then we run the Staging & Syncing option from the Administration menu - we tried both options with same result.
Once synchronized, the site get's all kind of errors. Some of the OTB widgets like the breadcrumbs are broken and we need to revisit each template to replace these broken controls. Also, once replaced, the breadcrumb starts by a "NULL" text before the actual breadcrumb...(see attached image).
To create the sites (DEV and QA) we used the Project Manager, and we created sites with names like DEV-SiteName and QA-SiteName. Could this be the issue? Do we need to have distinct names or do they need to be the same? When we are ready for production, can we rely on the Project Manager to create the shell four our new site, and then do the sync? How? Restore DB then sync? ...
Thanks for you help.
