MIcrosoft Storage Server 2003 SIS

I had a windows 2003 storage server running SIS, it crashed and died!  I had another windows 2008 storage server that I restored my data to.  We found a day or 2 later that certain docs were not accessiable due to SIS not be enabled on the server we restored to.

My question is.  Can I restore the sis common store and then enable SIS to make the documents available?  Or should I do the procedure in a different order?

We enabled sis on our windows 2008 storage server and restored the data from our windows 2003 storage server.  We found that the restored data was unavailable.  What we ended up doing is restoring to a windows 2003 storage server which worked fine and then copy and pasted the data to the windows 2008 server.  It wasn't pretty, but it worked.
