It was an MVP on an MSDN forum.
This is what we are trying to do.
We are trying to do a migration of Sharepoint Services V2.0 from one server
to another (Server 2003, Sharepoint Service V2.0 but eventually Server 2008,
SharePoint Services V3.0).
Run smigrate.exe to do a migration of the database and website, this appears
to work, it backups and compresses all the files into a .fwp format. When we
a restore it becomes apparent that not everything has been backed-up
correctly. Large chunks of the website are missing and no users or
permissions have been transferred. The original website was a little under
20GB and the restore was around 12GB, so nearly 8GB are gone.
The command i am using to back-up is smigrate.exe -w http://companyweb
C:\companywebbackup\companyweb.fwp -u user_name -pw password
To restore smigrate.exe -r -w http://server
-f C:\companywebbackup\*.fwp -u
user_name -pw password
There has been chat about moving the SQL Database as a different option, is
If anybody has any ideas I would appreciate them as my company relys on this
Service and the existing server is falling apart so it has to be done
