Export/import sharepoint data from one environment to the other

  Asked By: Geoffrey    Date: Jul 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4021

We have 2 environments. I have set up full data in one environment. Now I need
to setup the same data ( exact replication) in QA environment.
Since, I have to replicate exactly the same data, can some one advise how can I
export/import the data directly instead of manually copy -pasting.

Why not just do a standard stsadm backup and restore?

Another alternative would be to copy  the content database to the QA
environment, though I think in that case there's a "prepare for migration"
option you'll want to run with spconfig first (look it up; that's probably
not exactly what it's called, but you get the idea).

You can do stsadm-backup and then stsadm-restore.. this will
replicate everything including alerts recycle bin etc
or you can use estsadm-export stsadm-import

have used this heaps of times on many installations and have found
stsadm-backup more robust than export import.
backup restore is officially supported in the same farm but has
worked fine for me always.
