System restore sbs2008

Is there anyway to do system restore on the SBS2008? like on the win xp, win 7 etc so that it allows to select the restore point to get the server back to previous stage.

To add, if it is any help the following outlines the restore process and how to select a specific date:

What is it you are missing or why do you need to go back in time? Is there a specific item we can help you with? Perhaps a system state restore would help, or if missing files you may be able to use "previous versions" options.

No I am afraid not. If you have been using the SBS backup utility you can do a full restore and select the date to which you want to restore.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Upgraded to trend micro worry free security advanced 7. I didnt see any problem with sbs2003. But with sbs2008.

I haven't used that version but in the SBS circles several people have had problems with 7 and recommended staying with 6, at least for now.
Was it a recent download? There have been several "Critical patches" released that fix numerous issue, but they should be included with a current download. Having said that i didn't see any related to your issue.

Open up IIS and make sure the "SBS Web Apps" site is running. Sometimes it gets stopped by the Trend installer and won't restart on its own. A quick kick will usually resolve it.

Sounds like you have tried the IIS fixes.
Do you have a good backup from before Trend update which you could use to restore the server? You would need to run a current backup to save any data since that point.
Also wondering if TrendMicro support would be of any help. As mentioned several folk have avoided 7 or even reverted back to 6, due to problems, but I am not familiar with the issues or solutions.

we do offsite back up, do i need have sbs backup? or what sort of data i need from the offsite backup. I am in touch with Trend micro and they are just trying to resolved thier IIS website problem.

Off site backups are great for data but usually not a good option for server restores.
Firstly all data would have to be downloaded because SBS restore requires you to have physical access to the data, and downloading can take days.
Also most online backups do not back up the system partition.
Unless you have a plan in place for restoring the server I wouldn't try the restore option.

For future reference, it would be a good idea to use USB back up and the built-in SBS backup tool. This allows for very easy server restore. You could still use the on-line back up as a secondary for data protection in the event of fire or theft.
