You can do what you want 3 ways:
1. Use the command line stsadm -o backup to backup full companyweb on old server (SBS2008) and then stsadm -o restore on the new SBS 2008 server. This option overwrites the existing SharePoint site on the new SBS 2008 Server.
2. Use the command line ststadm -o export to backup full companyweb on old server (SBS2008) and then stsadm -o import to restore on the new SBS 2008 server. This option merges the backed up sharepoint site with the new SBS 2008 Server.
3. Deatch, copy and reattach content databases from old to new server. A couple of command line steps required here but nothing too onerous. This replaces the existing Sharepoint databases on new SBS 2008 server with those from old server.
Let me know if you need more specifics
Import Sharepoint (companyweb) database from old SBS2008 to new server SBS2008
Googling has not found me a guide for SBS2008 (only SBS2003). I am
hoping the knowledge in this group can help me.
I am moving my SBS2008 to a better host server (more CPU and RAM).
The rebuild has gone very well. I have taken my time to ensure the
server starts up with out error. The only remaining item is to move
the old companyweb Sharepoint DB across to the new server.
The server name and domain name are identical. The old server is
still working for me to access the previous sharepoint database. The
new sharepoint is virtually blank. There is nothing on the new
companyweb that I wish to keep.
Does anyone know the correct steps to export the entire companyweb
from the old server, and import it to the replacement server?
This is a home/hobby server for context. No business is going to
suffer from this.
