  Asked By: Tapasvi    Date: Apr 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 671

I just started using Sharepoint Services. I have some problem
restoring a backup file to another site on the same server using

my command is: stsadm.exe -o restore -url http://myweb/sites/siteB
-filename backupA.dat

error:The web site address "http://myweb/sites/siteB" is already in

i try to restore to another site that haven't exist yet and i got
the error: No Content database are available for restoring this site

May I know how to restore a backup file to another site on the same
server using stsadm? May I know how to solve the above problem?

Try the below commands to backup  the site  and restore  it.

stsadm -o backup -url  http://xxxxx.com -filename F:\xxxx.bak
stsadm -o restore -url http://xxxx.com -filename F:\xxxx.bak

If you still get the err 'no content  databse are available' which means you
got to check your database server  and see if the content db are in 'ready'
state. If its 'offline' switch it back to 'ready'...
