We had to restore a list (which has versionsing enabled) in our PROD enviornment SP 2010 August CU 2012. We used the following command metioned below:
Import-SPWeb http://example.com/projects/myList -path "E:\backups\myList\myList.cmp" -IncludeUserSecurity -UpdateVersions overwrite
The list was restored, however the users that did not exist in the organisation any longer were replaced with the user who performed the restore.
This is odd because we userd the correct flag as per the technet article Import-SPWeb. What's the point of having versioning if we loose the details?
Has anyone else faced this issue?
