duplicate multiple times a site collection into one content database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi;

    From CMP or Bak File try to duplicate multiple times a site collection into one content database but impossible to realize this action because I can restore only a single BAK or CMP into the content database (The restored site collection has new site ID (GUID)).

    Its works fine with Export/Import method or from a WSP file (save the site collection as a template).

    Exist there a solution for the CMP/BAK method ? Else Export/Import solution is better than the WSP solution ?

    Regards

  • Hi,

    Its not possible to restore duplicate site collection  in same Content database, as unique site ID will not allow you to do so. You can either add new content database and then try to restore or use save site as a template.

    but the problem with save site as a template is that you will not get everything in wsp as you are getting in backup. and also there is max size restriction on wsp.
