Error uploading a file by webdav. An older item named “xxxxx” already exists

We have installed a kubernetes cluster with Alfresco Community 6.2. We have problems uploading content through Webdav.
When creating a file or folder, the following error occurs:
An older item named “xxxx” already exists in this location. But it doesn't really exist.
We have enabled the log to see what is happening.

The rest of the installation seems to work correctly.

Someone has had something similar or can help us with this problem.
Thanks a lot

Good afternoon.

Webdav is very unestable concerning daily work with documents. Instead of using it why don't you use other tools? E.g. if you need to upload documentation you can use Bulk import tool.

If you can explain me your case maybe we can propose you other solution.

Cheers!

PD: Hemos tenido muchos problemas con webdav... Igual si nos cuentas te podemos ayudar mejor Smiley Wink
