I'm attempting to backup and restore a site collection in a 2003 implementation as part of a process to migrate ~1500 subsites to a MOSS 2007 implementation.
My first step was to backup the site collection these subsites were residing in
When I run the below command in STSADM I get the error "The specified URL is not a top-level Web site. The backup and restore operations work only for top-level Web sites. Enter the URL for a site to try the operation again.
stsadm.exe -o backup -url
http://CompPortal/sites/MySiteCollection/ -filename "C:\backup\BL" -overwrite
I checked in Central Admin to confirm that this is a site collection and I assume a top-level site and site collection are synonymous. Does anybody have a suggestion on what I could be missing?
