Sharepoint back up using spbackup.exe

Hi,

I am trying to back up data from my test server to production using spbackup.exe tool. When I try to restore using stsadm.exe tool on production m/c it says my back up is from a different version on WSS. But I check on the both the m/c that the versions are same, 6.0.2.4611. My command for back up is

spbackup -w, which gives me SPBakOut.bat file, then I place this in my procution 60\bin folder, and I give the command stsadm -o restore -url http://servername -filename SPBakOut.bat. Please let me know what I can do to solve this problem.

Hello Jeff,

I already did that, in both the serves, version names are same 6.0.2.6411 after installing security and sp1. But still I am getting the same error. And can I use spsbackup.exe  and smigrate.exe to backup and restore my sharepoint portal sites. Please confirm.

Thanking you,
Venu Angireddy

So, it sounds like the best bet for you is to back up and reinstall.
