Can't view file properties in document library ("File not found") after farm restore

cscalley asked
Last Modified: 2010-11-30
I have performed a full farm restore from an existing production server, to a test server.  

Everything is working ok, except that I get a "File not found" Sharepoint error when attempting to view file properties of documents in document libraries (in any of the sites, there are around 50 sites).  Specifically, I am selecting the drop down beside a file and selecting ("View Properties"), and I receive the Sharepoint "File not found" error.

This issue doesn't occur with our current production server.  

As background, I want to move all functionality from one SharePoint server to another server so that I can shut down the first server.  The existing farm contains only this one server, as well as a separate SQL server.  The new farm will only contain one server.

Any help much appreciated!  Any ideas/different approaches to move servers also much appreciated.  Thanks!
