Sharepoint 3.0 moved from 2003server to Win2k8 r2 x64


I'm trying to move my Sharepoint 3.0 frm 2k3 server to win2k8 r2 x64 server. When i restore my backup i get a problem with wss_content (restore failed for object WSS_Content failed in event OnPostRestore).

It shouldnt be any problem moving it to x64 server? I have been reading some post with the same problem, and they tell me to run the restore in stsadn an so on, and that's what i do. And upgrade to 3.0 r2, also tried. Any ideas of what i can try next? The backup was taken in Central adm, i couldnt take it in stdadm because the old server are crashed. So i only got the backup files from central adm.

For mor information i also run Standalone server.

Best regards. T

I would recommend that your simplify things. From the sound of things you are trying to recover a farm and migrate to 64-bit SharePoint at the same time.

Instead, recover your farm first and then plan a 64-bit migration afterwards.
