I am working on a Team site collection inside SharePoint enterprise server 2013. and the publishing infrastructure site collection and site features are enable. now i want to move the site collection from being on the root to be under a new managed path.
The site collection i want to move have the following properties:-
It is defined on the root
It have one direct sub-site
the above sub-site have another sub-site
now i want to move the site collection to be under different url which is
http://servername/Area/<current site collection>... where "Area" will be a Explicit managed path.
so i am planning to do the following to move the site collection from being on the root to its new URL.
back up the current site collection using BackUp-SPSite
Backup-SPSite http://servername/ -Path C:\Backup\A.bak
remove the current site collection permanently
create the new managed path named "Area"
Restore the site collection on the new url
Restore-SPSite http://servername/Area/A -Path C:\Backup\A.bak
so are the above 4 steps valid ? and could i result in having duplicate GUIDs?
