stsadm.exe not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to use stsadm.exe to add a content database to a newly created application in MOSS 2007. When I run stsadm.exe, I see the command line interface for a couple of seconds, then it says "command line error" and quickly lists a bunch of other lines that I don't have time to read before the window closes. All of this happens in about 3 seconds.

    What in the world is going on? Do I need to do something special to invoke stsadm.exe? Or is something off here?

    Thanks.

  • OK, I'm a fool. Haven't used stsadm.exe before, finally figured out that you have to invoke it correctly from a command prompt. Working now, thanks.
