By day, I'm a mild-mannered SharePoint infrastructure consultant for a Microsoft Gold partner. By night, I sleep. I've been working with SharePoint since 2006.

I have taken the time to write a few Microsoft exams and in turn Microsoft has graciously granted me the following certifications:

  • MCITP: SharePoint Administrator 2010
  • MCTS: SharePoint 2010, Configuration
  • MCTS: Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Configuration
  • MCSE 2003
  • MCSA 2003

    +1 This sounds like it will probably work as it will copy all dependant content (ie the lookups)

    Will you please provide an estimate of the volume of content you are indexing (types of content/document types, number of files, total size, average item/document size)?

    comment STSADM: enumallwebs -includefeatures question
    The only documentation I can find is a passing reference about changes made in the Octobet 2009 CU: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sharepointserver/bb735839. The enumallwebs operation page doesn't even list it as a parameter: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd793606(v=office.12).aspx or technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd789634(v=office.12).aspx

    comment How to configure cloned MOSS 2007 environment?
    I would suggest you test it out. I have never personally restored between architectures so I'm not certain. You're not taking the original farm offline (my assumption is you're creating a second, new environment with all the same data) so there's nothing to loose except time.

    Again you select new. The restore isn't restoring like (for example) SQL Server does. Instead, it's really just recreating using the settings you provide and the data that was backed up. It's not very clear at all that this is what is happening so your confusion is normal. ;)

    New -- that's the magic that lets you specify the new values. If you pick same, it will attempt to restore to servers and databases that contain the original values which is not desirable in your case.

    No, it would appear not. Adding the solution merely extracts the wsp and physically install the files to the server. There's a timer job that runs as the farm account that will copy these to the other servers. Deploying is the same thing -- it happens in a timer job in the context of the farm account.

    The restore will create an IIS web site (and app pool) just as it would for a new web application. It's not restoring the IIS metadata so if you had performed any manual customization you'll may need to provide this if you need it in your new environment.

    comment How to configure cloned MOSS 2007 environment?
    Oh, right. You'll need to add a step between step 1 and 2 to add the solutions to the new farm so they are available (I've edited my answer to include this step). This part will handle the files in 12\TEMPLATES and the GAC. If you've modified IIS in any way, you'll need to make those same changes on your new servers.
