Restore problem

  Asked By: Bhagavati    Date: Sep 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 806

I am having a strange problem with msdmback.vbs
I have been doing backup and recover on a different
machine using msdmback fine till now.
This is what I did
1) I just thought about adding the optional password
parameter during backup to see how it works.
2) The backup was successfull
3) I tried to do a restore on a different machine
without giving the password.
4) It ofcourse did not work but I got the nasty
Error: An error occurred during restore. See the
event log for more details.
ErrNo: C7FF0BB9
Desc: Automation error
Source: MSDMBack

5) So I thought i can easily fix this by providing the
password , but to my disgust IT GAVE ME THE SAME

6) So I thought I should revert back to the basic
backup/recover without the password parameter.

7) I did a backup again without any password and tried
to do a restore, BUT It still gave me the same error.

8) The restore doesnt work at all now..... dont know
whats going..

You just need to make sure that both servers have the same software with
the latest SP. Currently I have a production server with a cold spare
configured exactly the same as the production server in case I need to
restore to my cold spare.

You should also consider making it part of the domain that your
production server is in. Otherwise the security settings get squrrily
since it has no idea of any domain groups, accounts or even other
machines local accounts.
