Defect/Enhancement Number
The configure by deployment does not set the Root Node Id of the sites in the target site. Hence, syncing pages causes error.
Perform Site sync operation of a newly created site first before enabling "Configure by deployment" of the site.
Note that "Site Properties" must be selected while performing the sync operation.
This will sync all the required properties of the site and further deployments will modify the configuration of the sites as expected.
