I recently restored my content and was instructed to create mysites in a different location than was originally used. Now I have several users mysites in /personal. The new desired location is /mysites. From what I found in the documentation I should back them up and restore them to the new location.
Here's what I've done:
- Backup individual site collection for user mysite
stsadm -o backup -url "https://myUrl/personal/john_smith" -filename johnsmith.bkup
- Restore individual site collection for user mysite
stsadm -o restore -url "https://myUrl/mysites/john_smith" -filename johnsmith.bkup -overwrite
The result of this and the problem is when i enumerate sites i end up with this:
<Site Url="https://myUrl/mysites" Owner="domainname\john.smith" ContentDatabase="WSS_Content_MySites" StorageUsedMB="1.6" StorageWarningMB="90000" StorageMaxMB="100000" />
it leaves off the username part of the url. and if I restore more that one they want to overwrite each other.
