Culture Error while trying to migrate from 3.7 to 4.0

  • Culture Error while trying to migrate from 3.7 to 4.0
  • Hi

    We are getting the following error when using the migration tool to convert News:
    Error migrating news:
    Unsupported language "en-US". If you want to support this language, please configure your application accordingly.
       at Telerik.Sitefinity.Model.DataExtensions.ThrowUnsupportedLanguage(CultureInfo culture)
       at Telerik.Sitefinity.Descriptors.LstringPropertyDescriptor.SetString(Object component, String value, CultureInfo culture)
       at Migration.Classes.MigrationNews.ImportNews(MigrationGenericContent newsContent)
       at Migration.MigrationModule.ImportNews()


    We have added 'en-US' to localization in project that we are migrating from:

    <

     

     

    localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="None" defaultCulture="en" cultures="en-US, en" allowSpecificCultures="True">

     


    In the install method in the migration module we added the following to the solution that we are importing to:

    var

     

     

    cult = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture;

     


    In web.config file we change globalization from auto to 'en-US' in the project that we are importing to:

    <

     

     

    globalization uiCulture="en-US" culture="en-US" resourceProviderFactoryType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Localization.ExtendedResourceProviderFactory, Telerik.Sitefinity"/>

     


    We are still getting the same error.

    Thank you

  • Hello Janaka ,

    The current version of the migration tool does not export items with specific culture. The problem is that we will have specific cultures in Sitefinity 4.0 with the Q1 release that is scheduled in the middle of April. The migration tool was written to support only neutral cultures. After the Q1 we have to extend the tool, but this will take some time.

  • Hello-

    Is there any update on this?  I too ran into this issue while trying to import a SF 3.7 site into 4.1.  I have a large 3.7 site that has a large amount of content to import/export and I'd hate to have to-do it manually....

    If this hasn't been addressed is there an ETA?  If I have to I'll start writing custom XML Export/Import tasks using the API's myself but don't want to recreate this if it will be fixed soon.

    Thanks,

    -Thomas
  • Hi Thomas,

    The specific cultures are not handled by the migration. We will try to implement this for Q2 release.

  • We are having the same issue migrating a 3.7 SP4 site. On all the pages we get the en_us error "Unsupported language "en-US"". Is there any way to convert the 3.7 pages to be allowed to be imported? Our clients site has over 700 pages, are we stuck in version 3.7 until this patch.
  • Hi,

    You can try setting the language from en_US to just en in your 3.7 web.config. We plan to release a fix for the migration tool that will handle specific cultures in the beginning of the next week.

  • Has the fix for this been released? Where should I go to check for latest release information. The codeplex site shows "The Sitefinity Migration Tool is no longer hosted on CodePlex, but is available as a free product on Sitefinity.com.
    There are also Forum Threads which allow you to discuss your ideas and problems.

  • Hello,

    Here is  a link to the forum where we moved the migration tool. With the latest change set we added support for specific cultures.

    All the best,
