Oracle Endeca Guided Search version: 11.3.0

I faced the issue when importing the content (I wanted to import a new site, hence imported the pages directory). But got the following error :

<eac-app-folder>/control/ IFCR importContent pages /tmp/<appFolder>/pages

There could be various reasons (the wrong extension being the common one). But the best bet you have is to see the issue listed in Catalina logs. Go to <ToolsAndFramework-Installlation>/11.3.0/server/workspace/logs/catalina.out and see what error is it throwing.

In my case, the issue was that I was editing the filtestate.xml file using vim and my putty session got killed because of which there was an existing recovery file which was being referred by IFCR.
SEVERE: File ‘VC/.filterState.xml.swp’ with extension ‘swp’ is not allowed

I deleted that file. And it was all good.
