By now you’ve had a couple of days to play with SP2. Hopefully the install went well. There’s some new stuff in it that I want to show you. In this post I’ll tell you about the new STSADM operations that are introduced. I did an "STSADM" on a box running SP1 and the Infrastructure Update (build 188.8.131.5218) and on a box running the hot off the presses SP2 (184.108.40.20621). There are six STSADM operations in SP2 that aren’t there before. To make it fun, I’m going to list them in order of how excited I am about them.
#6 – variationsfixuptool
#5 – exportipfsadminobjects
#4 and #3 – setqueryprocessoroptions and listqueryprocessoroptions
#2 – enumallwebs
#1 – preupgradecheck
