How to migrate a cloned Production enivornment SharePoint 2010 Database, Web and Project Server to a Testing environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have cloned a functional production SharePoint environment (ProdSpDB_1, ProdSpWeb_1, ProdSpPrj_1) and brought it online in my test environment.  

    My servers are assigned newly test server names (TestSpDB_1, TestSpWeb_1, TestSpPrj_1) and IP Address were re-configured. They can communicate with each other.  I can RDP to the server to configure the servers.

    These are steps I have done to configure these machines and start the portal.
    1) The service accounts used by service application & app pools are no longer referring to the production domain.  

    2)  The SharePoint configuration wizard was run successfully.

    I have RDP to both servers and tried to compare the differences and make changes accordingly.  Should I perform a backup of the SharePoint farm and restore it in the testing environment to get everything working?  

    I referenced the following forum to help me, but it get's me part of the way.
