Windows SharePoint Service 2 Restore

  Asked By: Jessie    Date: Jan 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1299

We are using Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 (
from site setting and
from Add/Remove program Control Panel is 11.0.5329.6

We do backup frequency :

the command like following :

cd c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server

stsadm.exe -o backup -url http://rnointranet/ -filename

and now we want to restore the data :
we do the following command :

stsadm.exe -o restore -url http://rnointranet/ -filename

and error :

The Web site address "http://rnointranet" is already in use.

I try stop the www service or stop the sharepoint service but did't


What should I do to restore ?

You need to use the -overwrite option isf you are restoring a site  with the same
one that already exists. This will replace the existing site with the backup
copy, there is no merge.

computer with that name is already running thats why
its not restoring, u need to make an exact duplicate
copy of that computer, and u need to close the
computer down and when it is closed for 20 minutes
then start working on the other server, copy ur backup
files ot that computer and run it over dere

I tried using the overwrite function and I still receive the same
error. I believe it is because my site  is so large; it is 2 GB.
Does anyone have a solution for this? I don't know what to do.
