    Hi Sid,

    I was reading your post and I wanted to recommend cloudshare to you. It’s an excellent solution for dev/test with SharePoint. You can import your existing site or start from scratch with preset templates in your environment. I think you’d have a much easier time using CloudShare than what you had to do with Powershell. The website is here – http://www.cloudshare.com. Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    This worked well for me, bar a few hiccups, but it only clones single site collections. Is there a similar way to clone an entire web application including all site collections therein?

    This worked nicely when the ‘Export-SPWeb/Import-SPWeb’ commands did not work. (I believe the ‘Export-SPWeb/Import-SPWeb’ commands had issues with size or number of subsites or something likel that).
    Thank you for your post.
