Unable to Migrate Profiles - Ideas Related

Hello,

I am trying to migrate profiles from one Salesforce environment to another via Eclipse. While attempting to deploy profiles, I am receiving the following error:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
In field: recordType - no RecordType named Idea.Record_type_for_community_09a500000008b62AAA_entity_Idea found
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This led me to believe that I first need to deploy the Idea object and it's related settings. When I attempt to deploy the Idea object I receive the below errors:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
File Name:    objects/Idea.object
   Full Name:  Idea.InternalIdeasIdeaRecordType
   Action:  NO ACTION
   Result:  FAILED
   Problem: You are not allowed to modify record types on Idea

   File Name:    objects/Idea.object
   Full Name:  Idea.Record_type_for_community_09a500000008b62AAA_entity_Idea

   Problem: You are not allowed to modify record types on Idea

   File Name:    objects/Idea.object
   Full Name:  Idea.Record_type_for_community_09a500000008b67AAA_entity_Idea

   File Name:    objects/Idea.object

   Problem: You are not allowed to modify record types on Idea

   File Name:    objects/Idea.object
   Full Name:  Idea.All_WF_Ideas
   Action:  NO ACTION
   Result:  FAILED
   Problem: Could not resolve list view column: IDEA.CATEGORY

   File Name:    objects/Idea.object
   Full Name:  Idea.Ideas_Last_7_Days
   Action:  NO ACTION
   Result:  FAILED
   Problem: Could not resolve list view column: IDEA.IDEA_THEME
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I see that I cannot create or edit record types on the Ideas object and I don't see communities referenced on the Ideas object anymore. I think they might have been replaced by zones? In Eclipse the zones are stored under a folder called 'Communities' and I was able to deploy them but my errors still remain. Any assistance is appreciated! I hope there is a solution to this otherwise I may be forced to manually recreate all my profiles by hand.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mandy,


See if you only have a single record type selected for your user profile.  If you only have a single type selected you will not be given the option to select from other record types.

Setup >> Manage Users >> Profiles >> [select object] >> [look for assigned record type]

Also see the discussion in the below thread, 

this should be possible by using the Force.com IDE.
