Wow would have saved me a lot of time, thanks JJJ!
Did you have to patch MU 2.8.4a to get this plugin to work? I just get the following error:
populate_queries() function not found
Sorry, the function populate_queries() was not found. This function is required to use the Demo Data Creator plugin. See this WordPress MU ticket for technical details: https://trac.mu.wordpress.org/ticket/394.
Yeah I had to do that. But once done, a charm.
Would be nice if this was mentioned by the author somewhere before you go and download the plugin.
Just for reference: I used this to create some demodata on the wp3.0 test install replacig all instances of wpmu-admin.php in demodata.php with ms-admin.php. After that it works (after applying the necessary changes to wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php and wp-admin/includes/schema.php).
