Symptoms

The Dictionary objects are stored in a SVN called vcroot.  The location of the vcroot in dev is different from staging and production.  The supported process for doing dictionary work is to do it in dev, using testdrive for testing, and then to move the vcroot from dev to staging for additional testing through the propagation process.  There are times when someone modifies something in another environment and that modification needs to be moved back to dev.  The vcroot can be moved and copied over another vcroot.  However other changes in that target environment will be lost.

Process for manually copying the vcroot from one instance to another can be used in recovery or abnormal situations.  If you cannot propagate using a system manager job, then we also recommend that a manual propagation be used.  This procedure should only need to be done in very limited situations of recovery.
