we currently have a production and test SharePoint Farm setup. We are running backup exec 12.5 with the SharePoint Agent on both Farms. My topology is the same in both environments:
1 x SQL 2005 box
1 x SharePoint 2007 Server - WFE.
I am wanting to restore a site collection from from Farm A to Farm B and am not exactly sure of the process I have confirmed that the backups are successful.
This is what I have tried:
> Create a restore job
> Under selections I choose the web application and cyle to the latest backup which holds the content database
> I go to the SharePoint Redirection setting and I type in the URL for the destination and the Front-end server name
When I initiate this it fails. Is this the correct procedure or is there something missing?
I know I can restore the whole content database using the SQL Redirection but I believe this is not the correct procedure as there are alot of unique identifiers which are carried across which need to be reset.
I can do this process using the STSADM backup - restore commands but I would like to use backupexec
Any help would be much appreciated.
