I'm trying to restore a site via SMIGRATE (since it is a subsite) and I keep on getting that the server "timed out".
Below is exactly what I'm seeing.
Any thoughts as to why would be greatly appreciated.

The obvious answer is to increase time outs. Give this a try and see if it

Tune the IIS connection timeout
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then
click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
2. Right-click the virtual server  you want to configure, and then click
3. Click the Web Site tab.
4. In the Connections section, in the Connection timeout box, type the number of
seconds you want IIS to wait before timing out.
5. Click OK.

You hadn’t applied a template to the site  already had you ?

I notice this is a mysite – did you delete the original mysite then create a blank site (with no template applied) at http://s3w03214:9550/personal/OCCTestRestore?
