Error 0x80040209 when including saved searches in a IBM ECM FileNet Content Engine Export Manifest import job

Technote (troubleshooting)


When using FileNet Enterprise Manager to import data using Export Manifest, an error is logged stating that the import partially succeeded and the following error is written to the import log.


31/10/2012 16:35:09,Import Admin,Error,SEARCH_savedSearchname:xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx,0x80040209,The requested item was not found. Object identity: classId={xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}&objectId={xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}&objectStore={xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}. Class name: {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}

The SEARCH_savedSearchname item in the above error extract is an example and will correspond to an item name in your P8 domain.


The error is logged because saved searches cannot be imported using Export Manifest.

Although you can export saved searches in an Export Manifest job without any errors, the import will fail with the above error.
