I'm restoring from an existing sp2007 server to a new sp2007 server using the central admin functions.
I created my farm backup thru central admin. Then i installed sp2007 and the same service packs on my new server.
NB The server has a different name. The entire farm is on the one box i.e. sql server is installed on the same box as sp2007...i have this done on the new server as well.
I then opened central admin on my new server and restored the whole farm using the central admin restore. I did a 'new' restore and changed all pathways to be, for example,
http://newserver:85. However when i go to the pathway it goes to a dead link. The resore seems to have been successful in the logs.
I have looked on google and it says about doing some more config but im confused. Can anyone point me to the steps im supposed to do at this point. I want to get an exact replicia of my existing farm but just on the new server.
Thanks for help...
