We have been publishing infoPath forms to MOSS content types , initially without experiencing any problems. Our problem started only last month when we promoted additional fields on existing forms and then published the forms to back to the same content types.
When we publish already published forms to content types, a dialog with the following error is returned. "Updating the site content type failed"
If this same form is published to a form library library or a new content type, rather than an existing content type then the form publishes without an error.
We have tried the following:
" We removed all promoted fields, publishing is still unsuccessful
" We removed content from the form including fields, the publishing is still not successful
" We have worked through the event logs (attached), after we set SharePoint events to verbose, and tried different options he googled without success.
" We searched the Internet for a solution. Most responses posted made reference to removing promoted fields which as stated above does not resolve the issue. There were also comments made about possible timeouts when publish to the SQL Database but we are not publishing to a database. Furthermore, if this was the cause the problem should also occur then as well when publishing to a library or new content type?
The Verbose logs have been attached, containing the portion relevant to the form being published at that stage.
