Has anyone done this? We are looking for strategies on moving the entire contents of a Product from one server to another. I assume this is done via import/export manager but can this be done? Am I just moving content? What about change objects? I would like to start some users on a temp server while we work on production and then move their stuff over.
I have done this a few times using import / export tool.
Bad news is I have never managed (without an awful lot of pain) to get anything other than 'latest' of each object, and yes, it is content only, no change objects, promotion objects etc etc.
What version are you running?
If you're running 10.2 have you looked into using Replication Packages?
