CRM 2011 Exporting/Importing Solution


I just exported a solution from one server to another server.  The solution was exported and imported as an unmanaged solution.

My question is:  after getting the import to run without any errors, I discovered that none of the data came over when I imported the solution to the new server

1. Is this normal? When I export and import a solution should I expect to migrate the data in some other way?

2. If I need to migrate the data after a solution is imported to a new server, what is the best way to get the data moved to the new server?

Solutions are for migrating customizations made to one CRM system to another not for data,
To migrate data you can export to Excel and and then import the Excel files in Tools | Import.

If you want to duplicate the entire system it would be better to copy the SQL database and then impor it using Deployment Manager on the new CRM server.
