Clone production Sharepoint 2010 server to Developmet environment - steps? help?


Greetings all,

I'd really appreciate some thoughts and suggestions about how to make a clone of our Sharepoint 2010 Production environment that we can use for testing and development.

At the moment, we are likely to have two different servers (Production is a much more expensive, powerful server) for the scenarios; so if we make a direct clone, the Windows OS files would be upset.

Would it be enough to simply copy the Windows Shared files into the Dev system (taking all modifications with it) and the db into a cloned db?

If not, what are the things we'll have to consider, and/or has anyone accomplished this yet?

Thanks for your tips and suggestions!

Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?
