I noticed something odd today while trying to create a web using stsadm. I ran the following:
stsadm -o createweb -url http://litwaredemo/sites/EasternConference/AtlanticDivision -sitetemplate SPSSITE#0 -title "Atlantic Division"
However I got back an error saying :
File or arguments not valid for site template SPSSITE#0
I realised the problem was I forgot the last “S” just before the # for the site template. But rather then completely failing SharePoint partially created the web. So after fixing the syntax error I first had to delete the web before running the command again.
