Re-create Sharepoint 'General Documents Libary' in SBS 2003

Hi,
I was working with Sharepoint 2.0 services today on a SBS 2003 server.

It's not used much in our business but I'm currently investigating further usage.

The 'General Documents Libray' has been deleted and I'm after help on recovering it. I do have a full backup of the SQL database of SHAREPOINT taken last week and there have been no additional changes to the database over the weekend as no one else in the company uses it.

What is the easiest way of recovering/recreating the Sharepoint 2.0 'General Documents Library' ?

Do I need to be aware of any problems restoring the SHAREPOINT database from tape? The company uses Backup Exec 10d for backups/restores.

Any help would be appreciated.

there is no method for recovering a specific library in sharepoint 2.0
you will need to do a complete site recovery.

however, MS recommends using stsadm command line tool for making backups...  since it doesn't sound like you're using that method, i would recommend that you create a current backup using stsadm before you attempt to recover your site using a recovery method in sql management studio.

What options do you recommend I use of 'sysadm'?

Sharepoint 2.0 is not used by anyone so a restore would not impact and any of the users. Also I guess a complete remove/reinstallation of Sharepoint would not effect anyone, except my life outside work.... (which I don't have)..

Thanks for the help.

stsadm backup to backup the site.  if something goes wrong with your attempts to restore the database via sql mgmt studio, you can restore your current sharepoint site using stsadm restore.

note, the link i gave you above also has info about restore via sql server.

my suggestion is to create a site backup using stsadm backup.  then attempt to recover your site using the sql backup you have of the old site.  if that goes bad, you can restore your current site using stsadm.

I've run the stsadm and created a backup. I will attempt the restore and let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the advice.
