  Asked By: Palash    Date: Aug 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 747

At Present we have installed Share Point Portal Server With system name SPS.
now we want to restore it into another system with different system name .
is there any way to do this so that i can restore rather than creating on
new server.

I did this quite some time ago but I do not remember the outcome. If you
have the new machine available , then why not try it. Make sure that you
have all the needed security groups and users available when you do the
restore and that the new server  is of the same service pack. You will
have to move any customizations and if I remember correctly content
sources by hand.

Another why you might try is use the Import Export tools. This will copy
out the files and a manifest they you can point  it to another server and
import it. Source code for the export is available so you can tweak it
if you need. This way is time consuming as it actually copies the files
to the hard drive.
