Provisioning did not succeed
Now, we will see how to fix error, Provisioning did not succeed or The site template was not provisioned successfully error in SharePoint.
The workaround of the issue is creating an empty site collection using STSADM command next choose the template to create a SharePoint site.
STSADM.EXE -o createsite -url <url-to-site-collection> -ownerlogindomain\user -owneremail <email-address>
STSADM.EXE -o createsite -url http://servername:80/sites/RajSitecollection-ownerloginmydomain\rswain-owneremail [email protected] -sitetemplate CMSPUBLISHING#0
Remember, using the “Blank Site” template does NOT create a completely empty site collection.
The site collection created by the Blank Site template creates some content for the default website.
You can see the difference if you create a site collection using both methods and then inspect the content of the created sites using SharePoint designer 2013.
Then go to http://servername:80/sites/RajSitecollection, it will ask you to choose a site template. After select “Collaboration Portal”, the site is created without error.
