I am trying to restore a SharePoint site on a different Server (development machine). I ran this command using STSADM:
stsadm -o backup -url http://www.technologyblends.com
This created the technologyblends file (note, I forgot to give it an extension). Now, I am trying to restore it on a different machine, but am having trouble. First I did a simple file rename and gave it a .dat extension. This is the command I am trying to run:
stsadm.exe –o restore –url http://www.technologyblends.com/
-filename C:\technologyblends.dat -overwrite
STSADM does not like the syntax. I am not sure what is wrong with it. Thanks for any help given....
This is for SharePoint 2010 running SQL 2008 R2 (dev machine). The backup came from a machine running SQL 2008.
