Moving/Restoring a Single Server Deployment

  Asked By: Rico    Date: Feb 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 994

I am trying to trying to move my development server to a production one, and in the process not everything seems to be working. I have successfully moved the metadata, IIS config, databases & indexes. I cannot open the portal sites, I only get an “Error, the specified command could not be completed.” on a SharePoint basic web page, not just an IE error page. Any ideas?

If anything changes in the architecture of the farm (including server  names),
I've found you need to change it by doing a backup and restore using the
SharePoint Backup and Restore utility. Server names are stored in the
configuration database, and are updated properly when using that utility.
