SP 2010 admin tool to add to your toolbox

While working on a client project, I was refreshing SharePoint 2010 environments to support our various QA and Development teams.

I implemented the SharePoint 2010 content hub for this project.  While detaching/attaching content databases to the staging environment; the Metadata Term Store data did not transfer.

This term set was a key feature in our project.

I searched the internet and came across this tool on CodePlex.  This tool was easy to use and fixed my issue.

I was able to export the term set from the source SharePoint 2010 farm.  Then transfer the CSV file to the destination.  Installed the tool again and the term set uploaded with no issues.

[box type=”info”]This is a must have tool to add to your Admin toolbox.

The tool is called the termsetimorter.exe but it also exports the term set as well.
