The company I work for has just implemented SharePoint, with a few different Farms.
The DEV Farm is in use by some external consultants to develop a PMO webapp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_management_office
A 2nd external consultant(s) created the UI for PMO webapp, as a Feature that can be Activated and Deactivated.
On our TEST Farm, the UI Feature (WSP file) was successfully added and deployed.
I backed up the PMO site collection using PowerShell (backup-spsite) from DEV Farm and restored it to TEST Farm.
The PMO webapp is now accessible from the TEST Farm and the UI Feature activated.
A month goes by.
The DEV Farm now has the latest "Code" and the TEST Farm now has the latest "end-user data".
How do I 'sync' the two Farms so that they have the latest "Code" and "end-user data"?
I have a Production Farm that I would like to restore the latest "Code" from DEV and the latest "end-user data" from TEST.
