Error deleting subsite in MOSS

  Asked By: Brendan    Date: May 27    Category: MOSS    Views: 859

I'm getting this error when trying to delete a meeting workspace in
MOSS:

"An exception has occurred, cannot read backup folder from LCM
Site.Please ensure that the LCM Site has added you to Viewer group
list."

The error is not really explainative and I don't know what a LCM is or
why I need to be in the Viewer group... ???
The same error happens when tryin to delete the site from its parent or
from itself.
Any help will be really appreciated.

How are you deleting  the site?

I used WSS Administration pages, delete  site collection
server.domain.com/personal/username

That all worked and then when I went back in as user it recreated the
mysite, but the web-part was still defined even in the new site  somehow
and it still would not open

It is a meeting  workspace I customized, saved as template and it is
not longer neeeded. It is not a My Site.
I don't want to delete  the site  collection, just the little subsite.

Site actions -> site  Settings -> Delete site from the Site
Administration group.

I also tried from its parent  site:
Site Settings -> Sites and Workspaces -> click on the little X for
the site

Both ways, same error  happens.

"Deletion operation has been cancelled.
An exception  has occurred, cannot read  backup folder  from LCM
Site.Please ensure that the LCM Site has added  you to Viewer group
list. "

I posted an answer and can't see it.
Here it goes again:

I use the browser site  actions menu:
Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Delete this site

And I tried from the subsite's parent  too
Site Actions -> Sites and Workspaces -> click on the X on the child
site

Are you sure?, etc

In both cases, same error.

list. "

We installed the "MSIT - site  Life Cycle Management" from CodePlex.

Somehow we either did not installed or configured it properly or it has
some unintended consequences.

We uninstall it and everything is working fine, we can delete  subsites
without problems now.
