SharePoint Version 2.0 (WSS 2.0 SP3) Content Database restore to new farm

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Is it possible to use an SQL backup from a sharepoint Version 2 SP3 database to restore the content on a new server farm and attach to a new web applicaiton. NOTE: This is WSS 2.0. In WSS 3.0 this is a very simple task, but it is not the same in WSS 2.0 (the add content database option CANNOT be used to attach to an existing content database like it does in WSS 3.0). The options I have found appear to say you need the configuration database from the old server then it can be done. I am migrating from an outsourced deployment, so I do not have access to that. Plan B is to do a sharepoint STSADM backup. THis seems to be a more likey way to do it.

Full Farm Backup Fails on Windows Sharepoint Services Search Database

  
I am just now starting to us central administration to backup the entire sharepoint farm.  All content backups fine except for the Search Database.  In looking through the backup log, it appears that the search database may not exist.  How can I determine if the search database actually does exist and if it does not can it be recreated?

Cannot Restore Backup from Sharepoint Server 2007 to Sharepoint Server 2010 Trial Version

  
After installing the trial version of Sharepointn 2010 I wanted to restore my Sharepoint 2007 sites to it but received the following error:  "The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space." I went on to create a new content database in sharepoint 2010 but it still did not work. The old database i.e the one used by the sharepoint 2007 server is SQL 2005. During the installation of the sharepoint 2010 version I selected SQl Server Express for the database. Is there any specifics for migrating from MOSS 2007 to sharepoint 2010? Thanks for helping

version dependency while backup restore of SharePoint 2007 Site Collections

  

hi all

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 12.0.0.7777 to a server with say 12.0.0.6666 assuming that the versions of SQL is the same in both cases.

Will the version difference in SQL create issues

Thanks in advance

sharepoint 3.0 service, database backup restore

  

I am using stsadm to run daily backup of the server, but would like to run hourly database backup, not sure if it works to restore database and log for sharepoint service 3.0, the db is on sql 2005 embedded edition. does any one know or has any suggestions to backup WSS3.0 hourly?

I tried the backup restore feature in the admin site, didn't get it work when last time the server crashes, so right now only use stsadm backup / restore.

How to Specify Content Database for a Site Collection Restore from Backup

  
Hello,

I have prepared code that first creates a new Content Database within a specified Web Application, then restores a Site Collection backup to that same Web Application.  Unfortunately, the Restore doesn't provide an option to select the Content Database that was just created.  So, is there something that I might do to ensure that the Site Collection gets restored to the Content Database of my choice, programmatically?  If not, is there something I can do to change the Content Database for the newly restored Site Collection?  All ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Doug

How to make Windows SharePoint Services use a preexisting database as the content database

  
From the link below. I am trying to find in Central Administration the following:

  • Replace each instance of AdminVsAppPoolIdentity in the query with the account that is the SharePoint Central Administration virtual server application pool identity. This account is also the database owner (dbo) of the database.
  • Replace each instance of ContentVsAppPoolIdentity in the query with the account that is the content virtual server application pool identity.

  • http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/888041

    Where do I find the AdminVsAppPoolIdentity and ContentVsAppPoolIdentity ??

    Migrating content database to farm with different build number

      

    Is it possible to attach a MOSS content database from FarmA (SP2) to FarmB (SP2 + Oct Cumulative) when both farms are on different builds? Will FarmB automatically upgrade the content database schema to the new build when I run the stsadm addcontentdb comman? Or do I need to upgrade FarmA to match FarmB in build number first?

    Thanks.


    SharePoint Tutorial - Content Types

      
    SharePoint content types provide users with a way to manage and organize content in a more meaningful way. It's a reusable of settings you want to apply to a particular type of document in a library or item in a list.

    Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

      
    When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

    Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

    Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

      
    SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.
