I tried to restore a site collection from my production farm to my test farm. It was pretty straightforward and completed without errors.
The powershell command I ran to back up the site collection followed this syntax:
Backup-SPSite http://internet-staging/ -Path <file path/filename.bak>
The powershell command I ran to restore the site collection followed this syntax:
Restore-SPSite -Identity http://internet-staging -Path <file path/filename.bak> -Force
The site collection was created with 'internet-staging" as a host headre and the web application was extended to the host header "internet"
I see on my test farm's WFE that the "internet" site no longer exists in IIS ....
What did I do wrong and how do I fix? Should I have used the '-Identity flag during the restore?
