I am having moss2007 production server.I am taking backup of site using command. My command is
C:/Program files/common files/Microsoft shared/Web Server Extension/12/BIN/stsadm -o backup -url http://fsplintranet/ -filename \\192.168.0.56\image\backup.dat
When i run this command backup process starts, but after some time it terminates. Showing error is:
Action cannot be completed, Please try again.
Please suggest how to complete this backup.
Thanks in advance.
Is there a size limit for the .dat backup that can be taken using STSADM -o backup
and for the .dat that can be restore using STSADM.
Thanks in Advance

I am aware of a version dependency on the stsadm -o backup/restore operation.
But will the same dependency exist for a content DB backup restore..
i.e. for example will we able to restore a content DB backup taken from a server with version say 22.214.171.12477 to a server with say 126.96.36.19966 assuming that the versions of SQL is the same in both cases.
Will the version difference in SQL create issues
Thanks in advance
Hello, As a sharepoint newbie with practically 0% experience, I have inherited a sharepoint 2007 setup. Our 3rd party backup tool is not working (commvault) with this sharepoint server.
To troubleshoot, I went into MOSS 2007's central administration and tried to initiate a backup to a local folder on the sharepoint server. The estimated size of the backups when i was starting the backup was approx 4.5 gb. The first time I tried
this, the backups never finished after 12+ hrs and only ~300kb was in the folder. I have tried backing up to the local folder e:\backupfolder and have now tried
\\servername\e$\backupfolder and it fails also.
I tried to initiate another backup and it said to delete the job from timer definitions. I did so and tried again, now the backups fail almost instantly with the error, "The backup/restore job failed. In order to rerun the backup/restore the timer
job must be deleted from the Timer Job Definitions page. Failure Message:
Backup or restore is already running."
I'm confused as to whter backups are running, are not running or hung. I do see some logging but do not understand the logs. Below I will paste relevant time of logs when I tried to initiate latest ba
I made a backup of SharePoint farm from 2010 and tried to restore on a dev server and kept getting this error. I looked at the versions of SharePoint on both servers, and they were identical: 14.0.4763.1000
I'm posting this although it is not a question, but a statement that might help someone else. It took a while to notice that there had been an upgrade on the original server that the new dev box did not yet have... not an SP, but more like a hotfix
In Central Admin, go to "Upgrade and Migration". Click on "Check product and patch installation status". Scroll down the page of results and see if there are any links to updates that have been installed on the original server that are not on
the new server, or vice-versa. I did find a link on my original server. Clicking on it opened the update page, so I copied the URL, went to my dev server, opened that page and installed the update, and voila!
