MOSS 2007 - Site export, backup and restore

  Asked By: Jim    Date: Jan 13    Category: MOSS    Views: 1248

I have a large MOSS 2007 intranet environment. I am trying to backup
and restore a copy of that environment to a test server so that I can
test implementing SP1. So far the backup and restore via Sharepoint
Designer does not work for me because of the 25MG issue. I have tried
using stsadm to backup my moss environment with the -cabsize 1024 but
I have run into issues with that as well. When I use stsadm for a
backup (export) on my production server it starts eating the c drive
and I don't have enough space to finish the backup. Here are my

1)Is there a way to take a large MOSS environment and copy it to a
development server?

2)Is it possible to run the following command without it exporting all
of the subsites as well? If I could just export the parent site
without all of the subsites, this would get me started at least. I
can exclude subsites in the backup in Sharepoint Designer but I can't
exclude the subsites in the code below...
stsadm -o export -url http://intranet -filename <filelocation>.cmp -
cabsize 1024 -includesecurity
