MOSS Backup took a long time on new farm

  Asked By: Alisha    Date: Sep 21    Category: MOSS    Views: 1214

I ran a backup using MOSS backup and the job took 4 hours to complete.

There is less than 1 GB of data that backed up. From SQL, all of the

databases backed up immediately. The Search DB did not finish for 4


Any ideas?

Mine does the same thing. I read on a Microsoft site (can't remember

where?) that this is a DST bug in SharePoint 2007.

That is good to know, I had the same result. Does anyone know if there
is a fix coming?

Here's the link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932563.

For some reason, running the following command delays backup  for four

Stsadm.exe -o backup -directory "\\server\fileshare" -backupmethod full

I've duplicated this on two separate servers.
