Powell Manager synchronization fails

I am currently setting up my site collection structure and keep getting an error when trying to synchronize my changes from Powell Manager to SharePoint.

Specifically, I had set up and synchronized a specific department as a subsite, and added a nested subsite inside of the department. I then navigated to Powell Manager > Deployment > Site Collection Structure to add my subsite to the department’s navigation, and was able to add a link with the following explicit data:

  • Title: Internal
  • Url: http://www.wellknownshoppingsite.com

However, trying to link to my actual subsite kept on failing, using this data, and, as before, choosing the ‘Erase’ function when synchronizing:

  • Title: Internal
  • Url: https://sampleintranet.sharepoint.com/sites/intranet-test/about/departments/mydepartment/internal

The error message is pretty confusing, as it does not refer to the actual subsite or navigation, but only mentions the overall containing web, which does not differ from the working example:

Error Code : 9Cannot contact site at the specified URL https://sampleintranet.sharepoint.com/sites/intranet-test/about/departments. There is no Web named “/sites/intranet-test/about/departments/_vti_bin/sites.asmx”.
