I have made BAKs files with SQL Server of my SharePoint 3.0 content databases. When I take my backups that were created 3 weeks ago, and try to restore to a sub-site on the same SharePoint server, I see this error:
Your backup is from a different version of Windows SharePoint Services and cannot be restored to a server running the current version. The backup file should be restored to a server with version '1162887508.196608.1769486
0.0' or later.
In the past week, MS Security patches have been applied to the server, so I my BAK file is now from an older site.
I have restored the database using MS SQL Server Management Studio to the SharePoint instance, as described in this article:
But site does not come up. I have HTTP 400 Bad Request on the site and the Site Collection List information in for the subsite has blank information. Title, URL, database name, email address and other info is blank.
Is there a way to make a backup of a SharePoint content database compatible with a newer SharePoint server/site?
