SPS restore to new server failing

  Asked By: Marla    Date: Dec 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1383

I need to backup my SPS and restore it to another server in order to
migrate all data.

The servers are in the same domain.

I used the msdmback utility and the backup ran succesfully, but when I
tried to restore to the destination server, the utility stopped and
returned the following error message:

Error: An Error occurred during restore. See the event log for more
details.

ErrNo: 8007000D

Desc: Automation Error

The Data is invalid.

Source: MSDMBack

The command I gave was:

msdmback /r D:\image

In the event log I found the following errors
Event ID: 1197

Answer #2    Answered By: Rose Silva     Answered On: Dec 23

Please try it like this:

For Backup
msdmback /b d:\backup.bak

and then recover the above backup  like

msdmback /r d:\backup.bak

Better give the absolute path like "c:\program
files\sharepoint portal  server\bin\msdmback.vbs" /b
"d:\mybackups\backup.bak"

I resolved the very same errors this way...Im sure it
works fine !

The two servers  have the same OS (Win 2000 Server), the same service pack (SP3)
and the same SPS installation.

The hardwares are of a different typology but both Dell's.

 
Answer #5    Answered By: Doris Leach     Answered On: Dec 23

ok...also make sure you run new latest avaiable
service packs from micoroft ( I think the newest is SP
2 for Sharepoint)

 
Answer #6    Answered By: Sumitra 2004     Answered On: Dec 23

On both the servers  the same servicepack of SPS must be installed.
I had a problem too, when I tried to restore  a backup  file, created on a server
with SPS and SP2 to a server  that was installed with SPS and SP1

 
Answer #7    Answered By: Bhairavi Damle     Answered On: Dec 23

are you using the same version of SPS as far as service pack levels? How
about the same version of Windows 2000?

 
Answer #8    Answered By: Leeann Hull     Answered On: Dec 23

Aren't you supposed to backup  and restore  from files that AREN'T in the
root directory?

ie, use

D:\sps-back\backup.bak

instead of

D:\backup.bak

I know the release notes and KB articles talk about not using a drive's
root path.

 
Answer #9    Answered By: Vaasu Radhakrishna     Answered On: Dec 23

I updated SPS on the destination server  with SP2. Now the source  and the
destination server have the same OS (Windows 2000 Server) and the same service
pack (SP3).

When I launch the command msdmback  /r C:\backup.bak, restore  starts and stops
after a few minutes returning the following error  message:

Error: An error occurred  during restore. See the event  log for more details.

found  the following error messages in the application log:

After restore fails, on the destination  server sharepoint  Portal Server service
stops and doesn't restart anymore.

If I launch SharePoint Portal Server Administration console, I get the following
error message:

Unable to open the SharePoint Portal Server named 'DestinationServer'

Information store  (1080) Database recovery/restore failed  with

unexpected error  -535.

You know, you just have to love the logic that is behind this statement.

This implies that there are some errors which are expected.

 
Answer #11    Answered By: Sheryl Velez     Answered On: Dec 23

I know this error. I look in Technet Microsoft talks about not enough free space
in the drives for the restoring......
The problem is in service pack of sps. If you want to upgrade to Service pack 2
follow this:
Install w2k in the destination server  --> install w2k sp3 --> install sharepoint
v1.0 -->install sps  service pack 1 -->Restore the portal  (In my case i have it
with sp1)-->install sps service pack 2.
As you know the service pack "destroy" all the adhoc developes that you made to
the sps system files. Then you have to start manually to migrate the added codes
to the sps new sp2 files
