I have two actual PCs - let's call them DevPC and TargetPC.
Apart from one exception, each PC has the same VM on it (using VirtualPC), which defines the same domain ("LITWARE"), and is primary domain controller of it.
The exception is that I've added a web application and a site to the TargetPC on port 1800, and just a web application (port 8100) on TargetPC. I'm not sure if the port numbers have to match.
When I try to import, I set the URLs as
Site URL = http://DevPC:8100
Import URL http://TargetPC:1800/mysite
I get two errors saying: "Wrong URL"; and a longer error message about not having the permissions to run the command (use "run as .." etc). I am logged in as Administrator on both VMs, so I'm not sure it the second error is caused
by the first.
We're guessing that both VMs on the two machines think that they are the primary domain controller of LITWARE domain, but obviously "there can be only one".
We could try making the DevPC VM a secondary domain controller and use only the TargetPC as primary domain controller, but we're probably not allowed to, and I'm not sure if that would help.
What's wrong with the URL? Are the ports included in the URL?
I'm quite new to stsadm exports and backups, so I also have more general questions :
Am I right in thinking that the CMP file depends on the DevPC ("Site URL") as a source of up to date content?
Is the difference between an exported CMP file and a backup .dat file (as created by stsadm -o backup) really that the backup includes ALL of the content, and none of the physical files
Aside from the contentdb, do exports and backups both include all the same information about the site structure?
