I am trying to export a Sharepoint site from one environment to another. The steps I followed are as below
- created the site collection with web application from Sharepoint central admin in the new server.
- exported from older env ( using export command producing .cmp file)
- build the code and deployed the wsp's (using the install and add commands)
- Try importing the site using the import command ( getting the below listed exception thrown)
Import-SPWeb : Could not find WebTemplate AZ.SHAREPOINT.MLZ.SITEDEFINITION#1000 0 with LCID 1033.
Please advise me on the above error, on how I could get the template from my older environment and install in lower environment to enable the import to work.
Tried saving the site as template without content (due to size issue) in older env and in restoring in new but that too was throwing an exception like an feature is not activated in new one which was also not found in manage site features of older site.
Any help is highly appreciated, as I am stuck here trying to reproduce the steps in different order and servers.
