we taken backup of the existing portal and trying it restoring it in another server.

This reigns true in sharepoint  2007 as well. They give you a much more thorough warning about how "the content databases will be modified" and yada yada yada. If you are extending shared  services you want to make sure you take a complete backup of all your sharepoint databases before you click OK in case you need to roll back.
