Who has deployed an Adept "sandbox" or test environment?

We have an identical, replicated copy of our Adept environment which has been super helpful in developing workflows and testing with other users. Since we are in a virtual server environment, it is easy to deploy resources quickly. Is anyone else doing this? How do you have it set up?

    Same here! A tip is to set the Adept services to manual or shut them down prior to cloning. That way when the new sandbox comes back up it isn't in contention with the primary system with respect to SQL, etc. Then you can map the sandbox systems to their correct mates before reengaging the Sandbox Adept services.

    I had some issues with remapping some of the services and was forced into uninstall/reinstall on the sandbox servers. Did you have that problem?

    Is there a way to copy only the database structure, workflows, etc. without losing my DB records. I need to get my production server changes reflected on my test server but I don't want to lose all of the test data.

    @xmicahx -- I used to copy all my data over to my test server before adding new functionality, but we had very few users so this wasn't too much of an inconvenience.  For a more hacky way that I probably would have used back when I was a customer...

    @Gene.Sewell-- is there a way to simply copy over the altered tables instead of the entire database?
