Sharepoint 2010 test environment - content databases migration question

MisUszatek asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a SharePoint 2010 test environment that I want to populate with data from my production environment. What is the best procedure to do it. I was thinking about doing something similar to database attach upgrade (delete first default database and attach a copy from production using "stsadm -o addcontentdb"). Any other recommendations or suggestions or words of caution? Thanks!
