Site Collection and subsite Backup, Restore, and MigrationMicrosoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
I received an inquiry this week asking how to migrate an existing Site Collection as a subsite of a new parent Site Collection without having the availability of SMIGRATE in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007/Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. The answer are new STSADM parameters, import and export, which has been made available in STSADM. The import/export feature is based on the new Content Migration APIs; Recycle Bin state and alerts are not included in STSADM -o export - the requirement that the new Site Collection or subsite exists, remains as with previous versions of STSADM when using the restore parameters. A benefit of the export parameter is that security settings will be included if desired; whereas, in SMIGRATE WSSUserUtil was required to capture and import web security. Sample syntax of the new parameters follows:
stsadm -help export
[stsadm -o export -url URL -f filename]
stsadm -help import
[stsadm -o import -url URL -includesecurity]
