I have a question regarding SharePoint Foundation 2010 and backup / restore jobs...
I'm doing nightly farm backups using PowerShell:
Backup-SPFarm -Directory \\same-server\***** -BackupMethod Differential
This morning I decided to try and restore a single web application, just to make sure it works. In Central Administration I selected the latest farm backup and then selected the node for the Web Application and choose restore (using option: Same configuration)
because it's the same server. Restore process went fine, no failure messages, and I can see that it has restored the content I deleted for testing.
BUT when I enter the site. I'm presented with a Login page (that you would see if you have also configured Forms Authentication for the same zone, which I have not) and the drop down box show two options: "Windows Authentication" and "Windows
Authentication". Both let me use windows credentials to login so basically the login page is pointless and it wasn't there before.
I should note: The Web Application was and is configured to use Claims Based Authentication and for Windows Authentication: Kerberos. Nothing for forms. Default sign in page. And I was never presented with this redundant login page before the restore.
Anyone knows why this could be happening and how to solve it??
