The content DB was almost full so i created a new DB in SQL mgmt studio.
Before the move I locked (write-protected)- all sitecollections and stopped WSS Timer service and took a diskbackup of the DB.
Then i ran stsadm -o enumsites url DB-name > sites.xml and split sites.xml into 9 pieces. Every piece consists of sitecollections with sum less than 7 Gb.
Moved the sites with
stsadm -o mergecontentdbs -url http://arbetsrum.domain.local -sourcedatabasename From_DB -destinationdatabasename Destination_DB -operation 3 -filename c:\temp\move_1A.xml
The move seemed to succeed. The sitecollections can be reached and no problem to run stsadm enumsites.
But the problem is that mylinks has disappeared for the users and it is the links to the moved site collections that has disappeared. We have tried to sync the DB with
stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 0
Our sharepoint version is 188.8.131.5221 SP2007 SP1. Windows and SQL server 2008 64-bit
How can I get back the mylinks ?
