Configuring the Staging Server

Commerce Server 2007
For the latest version of Commerce Server 2007 Help, see the Microsoft Web site.

This section provides instructions about how to configure the staging server. Use this server to synchronize multiple servers in a Web farm, or to copy Web site content and data between separate environments. This server is typically deployed in the staging tier of the data/staging domain. You configure the staging server in a similar manner as the business management server that resides in the production tier.
