My company is just starting to use sharepoint for some of our contractors. And I am now tasked with the administration. (yay)
Development was done on a standalone server and they were planning on using the standalone server in production for 300+ contractors, once I was brought on board I built a farm and migrated the database over into SQL Server from SQL Express. That part worked fine.
For some reason, the portal that they built is a subsite of a subsite, of course besides for the links down, the site collection and subsite are empty. What I need to do is move that sub-subsite up to the root level. Perferably in a host-header site collection so that I can give it a specific name.
The problem I am having is I dont know enough about Sharepoint I guess. When I use: stsadm -o Export "blahserver/blah/blah/" -filename C:\blah.bak -includeusersecurity it seems to run correctly, no errors, however the blah.bak file generated is only 5k.
when I run stsadm -o import "blahserver/" -filename C:\blah.bak -includeusersecurity It runs, no errors, however I cant find anything that is actually created or moved.
I followed http://www.casualcoder.com/sharepoint-change-subsite-level/ exactly.
I also attempted to use export-spweb and import-spweb, I cant find the exact error from that attempt but it was in regards to the database, and was undefined.
I've been beating my head against the wall for days(If this was in anything besides sharepoint, it would be a simple drag and drop... One click). I'm to the point where a consultant might be a good idea on this one.
Any ideas how I can make it work?
