Error when deploying Profiles



I am trying to deploy from sandbox to production and it is complaining about not being able to rename standard profiles.


The only way I can deploy it is to untick these profiles:


Guest License

Chatter Free

Chatter Moderator

Chatter External


Surely these profiles should be exactly the same on both systems?


I thought at first it must be a version clash, but no, both systems have the winter 12 penguin logo.


Any ideas?




I understand that standard profiles cannot be renamed.  Or deleted.  Interesting, I didn't know you could do it in a Sandbox.


btw, you cannot do any renames or deletes in a Change Set deployment.  Those have to be done manually.
