    Hi Shannon,

    I recently ran into a similar error message, the client tried to Rollback a document which produced an error, then you could no longer open the node (it produced the same error as above).  It appears it started creating a new version for the Rollback but never finished due to the error.

    Are you able to open the document?  You could try finding out what document it is by looking in the cmsContentVersion table for that versionId to grab the Node ID, then check the cmsDocument table for the nodeName.

    If you can't open the document in the backend UI and get the same error, the fix I used may work for you.  However I can't guarantee there won't be any side effects or if this is a proper fix, but it worked in my case.  Make sure you make a database backup first!  The fix is to delete the latest version which is "bad", which I got from this workitem.

    DELETE FROM cmsPreviewXml WHERE versionId='your-version-guid-here'
    DELETE FROM cmsContentVersion WHERE ContentID='node-id-here' and versionId='your-version-guid-here'

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks Tom.

    Our site (V4.9.0) (backend only) died with a similar error following use of the ROLLBACK option in the content tree. Our non-techincal editor had a meltdown!

    I had to copy the databaase to a local machine to edit as per your advice, then reload it back at the service provider. Worked 100% and only took minutes.

    All the best

    John P
