Issue displaying Assets Pane


I am in the process of migrating from 6 to 7.5, all the code is done, but I am importing content from 6 to 7.5.


All the content imports fine, and all the media appears to import ok as well. The issue is when I try view the assets pane.


Nothing is being rendered in the top window area where the folder structure appears, in the log I get the following error appear:


2014-04-07 11:04:39,484 WARN [32] EPiServer.Core.ContentProvider+<>c__DisplayClass1c.<LoadContentFromCacheOrRepository>b__1a - ContentLink=30177, ReadAndCacheObject delegate...LoadContent returned null


I am not sure where this 30177 is coming from just that in sql profiler it is used in the following executing

exec netPageDataLoad @PageID=30177,@LanguageBranchID=1


It must be stored as root node of something, but I am yet to find anything.


Has anyone experienced this? or can point me in the right direction to resolve this issue.


Many thanks

so further to this,  have this content in the content table

1	1	NULL	NULL			43F936C9-9B23-4EA3-97B2-61C538AD07C9	Root	NULL	~/UI/edit/workspace.aspx?id=1	
27920	1	NULL	NULL	7BAD2B80-F2C4-4E76-B048-619C39770971	Reycle Bin	Reycle-Bin	~/link/3cc1395fef5040f497895679b4cc48d2.aspx	
30175	15	NULL	NULL			E56F85D0-E833-4E02-976A-2D11FE4D598C	SysSiteAssets	SysSiteAssets	
30176	15	NULL	NULL			99D57529-61F2-47C0-80C0-F91ECA6AF1AC	SysContentAssets	SysContentAssets	
30182	15	NULL	NULL			E6C2709A-64B4-43DA-B1AC-183A144CA535	CarouselBanners	carouselbanners	NULL	

 so there is no 30177 being stored in the database... I still cannot find any reference to this elusive ID!

So more digging has found this row in the tblSystemBigTable, although I'm not sure if this actually helps!

pkId	Row	StoreName	ItemType	String02
49310	1	EPiServer.Web.SiteDefinition	EPiServer.Web.SiteDefinition, EPiServer, Version=7.5.394.2, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fe83dea738b45b7	30177

would i have to run the migration everytime i wanted to do a content import from 6? The references to the vpp folders have been removed, would i need to add them back in as I get an error of:

Cannot find any virtual path providers to migrate

Sorry, I think I misunderstood you. If you are doing a regular import after you have converted to EPiServer 7.5 and the media system you should of course not have to convert VPP->Media content.

The 30177 content id point to a Site content assets folder and it does not exist on the site. (maybe it has been deleted or some bug in upgrading procedure) you can re-assign it by brows to admin -> manage web site and save the site definition.
But I think it should not be an issue that you can not see media on the assets. The question is "Do you have a media content type registered on the site before importing of package?.
BTW: Did you get some warning under importing of old packages?.

I did get some errors when importing, but they were very generic, mostly 'Object not set to an instance of', with no indication of what was being imported, a refence to zipped data

I have two media types, an image and generic media.


So i ticked the use site specific assets and the the assets pane is now working!! Thanks alot for this


Is there an easy way move the migrated content that currently sites in the For All Sites to For This site area, as the content in for all sites is not editable

Maybe you need to set access for the all site for editing contents. Admin -> Access Rights -> Set Access Rights, Global Assets.
You can also move the contents from all sites to this site by move operation.
