Exception Object reference while transferring Document Set to a Drop Off Library

SharePoint 2010 offers a feature that allows document transfers between 2 SharePoint Sites.

If using this feature is pretty straightforward for plain documents, transferring a document Set can raise an error. SharePoint ULS mention a NullReferenceException. :

OfficialFile: File http://spSite/DocLib/ was not saved at router location /sites/Destination/DestinationDropOffLibrary. Exception Object reference not set to an instance of an object. thrown at: at Microsoft.Office.RecordsManagement.RecordsRepository.OfficialFileCore.SaveFileToFinalLocation…

Site http://spSite/sites/ Destination/_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx is not properly configured for this request.

A quick resolution for this issue is to create at least one content organizer rule that match Document Set content type. This rule event don’t have to be active :

With this rules enabled, sending a document Set to a Drop Off Library finally works.
