Hello,

 I have a SharePoint 2003 Portal in our production environment and a SharePoint 2013 in our test environment.

With the following command "stsadm -o enumsites -url http://sharepointserver.domain.com"

 The list all of the site collections correct?

it is shows the following paths.

/sites
/personal

Also, what is does enumsubwebs? Are these just sub-sites?

Just trying to understand the transition to the new version.

Hi,
thats correct.
From the official documentation (which still exists after more than 10 years - but not comparable to the latest versions):
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc287902(v=office.12).aspx#enumsites

stsadm -o enumsites

Open in new window

lists all site collections

stsadm -o enumsubwebs

Open in new window

lists the subsites (webs) inside of a particular site.

A major change in wording from 2003 onwards has been that a "Virtual Server" in 2003 became a "Web Application" in 2007.

Do you plan an upgrade? If yes, good luck.

Yes we are jumping from 2003 to 2013. We are using metalogix to migrate the data and it seems to be working good.

I just wanted to clarify that all of them were site collections and not sub-sites.

So all the MySites under /personal are there own site collection?

The previous admin had installed Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 and then installed SharePoint 2003.

Hi,
I cannot remember if each individual My Site has been just a site or a site collection in 2003 - but I think it is "just" a site.

Please remember that each site collection has also its own root site - therefore I would be careful with the wording of sub-sites.

So could everything created under /sites be the same?

In the new version how would you go about creating a site under /sites?
