Please advise and help me solve this issue.

  • You have SharePoint Online tagged. Is this an accident? You cannot use stasadm with SharePoint Online.

    In that case tagging your question with "Sharepoint Online" is misleading. You should use the "2010" tag instead. Only use the tags your question really belongs to.
