Questions about stsadm

  Asked By: Marcella    Date: Jan 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1038

I used stsadm.exe to back up http://server/divName

Can I use use stsadm.exe to restore to another server at the fieldtest

Smigrate fails on the restore , which is why I am trying stsadm.

Do I need to create a bogus site "fieldtest" for stsadm like you have
to for smigrate?

Assuming WSS v2.

STSADM only backs up and restores Site Collections. SMIGRATE only does webs.
If you want to use STSADM to restore  something to
http://newserver/divName/field/fieldtest than that has to be a Site Collection.
