stsadm 2007 missing operation "ExportIPFSAdminObjects" RRS feed

  • Question

  • In stepping though the almost 300-page Microsoft document on upgrading SharePoint 2007 (SP2) to SharePoint 2010, they say to use the "stsadm -o ExportIPFSAdminObjects" command to export, then re-import info-path forms and solutions, but my system tells me the operation does not exist; and when I do help on stsadm.exe, it confirms it.

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o ExportIPFSAdminObjects

    Missing operation name or the operation name is invalid.

    I am on full SharePoint 2007 (SP2), so what is the problem, and why is this happening, and how can I fix it?

    Thanks!

  • Well, there have been a few views, but nobody has yet chimed in?

    Anybody? Here's my SP version - 12.0.0.6421 - Moss 2007 SP2 - 32-bit on Windows Server 2003 Standard SP2, 32-bit.

    I mean, do I actually need to move to SP3 for SharePoint 2007, just for that STSADM feature (ExportIPFSAdminObjects)?

    FYI, I did notice an "IpfsUpgrade.xml" in the 12\CONFIG" folder (It appears to be from long ago).

  • Looks to me like the Microsoft documentation is just plain WRONG - SP2 for 2007 did not appear to place this capability on my system. But, when I look in the new SP 2010 server, it DOES have this option.

    So, maybe I can try running the 2010 stsadm from the 2007 server?

  • Hi

    I think you are missing output path try with this cmd    

    stsadm -o ExportIPFSAdminObjects -f C:\temp.cab
