I have installed SharePoint 2010 SP1 on my local developer machine.
I wanted to copy a site collection from one of our productive servers (which hasn't SP1 yet but the December 2010 Cumulative Update) to my dev machine so I could develop locally on it. So I made a backup on the server with
stsadm -o backup ....
When I tried to restore it back on my machine with
stsadm -o restore ... it brought the following error:
Your backup is from a different version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation and c annot be restored to a server running the current version. The backup file shoul d be restored to a server with version '184.108.40.20630' or later.
Why is that? I know that I have a different (newer) version locally. But it says "or later" so isn't it suppose to work this way? I could understand it when it was the other way around (restoring backup from a newer version on an older SharePoint) but so it makes no sense.
Shouldn't that be possible or am I doing something wrong?
