Backup/indexer problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I attempted to run a backup and got an error. The command and error are listed below:

Stsadm -o Backup -directory <backup folder> -backupmethod full

An indexer is not assigned to the Shared Services Provider 'SharedServices_64bit'.

I then went to Shared Services Administration: SharedServices_64bit and under Search clicked on Search settings.

The heading of the page that came up was Error, followed by

An indexer is not assigned to the Shared Services Provider 'SharedServices_64bit'.

Configure an indexer and a search database for this Shared Services Provider

I clicked on the "Configure an indexer ... " link and got this:

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: The specified account name is invalid.
Parameter name: account

Compatibility problem: an "sql server 2008 R2" db backup cannot be restored to an "sql server 2008"

To verify if the "2008 R2" version can be restored back to a "2008" dbserver I make an experiment:  construct a database on R2 version ( version : 10.50.xxx )  and backup it; then I try to restore the db backup to a "sql server 2008" db-server ( version : 10.0.xxx ) but get failed. Error message is as shown: The database was backed up on a server running version 10.50.1600. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running version 10.00.2531. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup, or use a backup that is compatible with this server.   Originally I want to upgrade a "2008" server to "2008 r2" , but this problem withdraws me: if I do so , I am afraid all the existing clientuser's dbs cannot be backed up to themselves if they don't have "2008 r2" locally:   if a database is backed up under "2008 r2" environment whereas client user only has "2008" db server, does it mean he cannot restore it anymore?   So I wonder if there is an approach that helps me to create a "backward-compatible" database; when creating database on wizard there is an option to choose "compatibility level" but I don't think it meets my requirement..    Anyone can help me on this ??    

Backup tools fro granular restore - Symantec BAckup Exec Problem

Dear all, we are facing a problem here. Our sys admin set up everything to run the farm backups. He is using Symanteck Backup Exec 2010. In that farm we have 3 web applications which represents 3 content databases on a separate SQL back-end machine. When the backup is done, the report tells the backup succeed. It happens that when we try to recover from the backups, we can recover from an item level from 2 of those web applications, but not from 1. It created the whole site backup, but we cannot dig in to recover an item or a subsite. Did anyone had this problem before? (I gave farm admin levels to the account used by Backup Exec to double check the rights. That user could log on to the site and indeed he could go to all subsites and all item levels. So it is not access I believe). Any other expiriences with this tool? What about other tools? We are having a demo of AvePoint soon. Does anyone worked with that before? Thanks in advance for any help. Regards, GoncaloGonçalo
