Subject Re: Restore of node with child node having onParentVersion=VERSION fails
Date Tue, 02 May 2006 06:14:48 GMT
hi david,
you need to checkin that childnode aswell, before you are able to
restore the node. otherwise, there is no version you can restore from.
since the rootversion is only a sentinel of the version history, it
cannot be restored from.

regards, toby
