All,

both our sharepoint dev guys left within teh space of a week and as DBA someone thought id be fine to support. Investigation shows no Dev or DR in place and only using Docave backups no sql so not happy.

im trying to create a redundant farm that is restored from sql backups overnight in case of complete loss of archietcture, I have configured one web front end and a new back end db server.

i have created a web app teh same as live with Dr tagged onto the url. I attach the old content db's with the same name and can see the relevant site collections in each DB, however when I browse the address i get a file not found error. if i attach a vanilla content DB and top level site collection then the default sharepoint page is displayed so i knwo teh config is all fine its just attaching the old content DB.

extra info is that ALL our data is held in the top level site collection ( crazy I know and awaiting a complete re develop but need something to support in the interim)

Thanks in advance,

Jay

Try creating a blank site collection then use

stsadm.exe -o addcontentdb -url <URL name> -databasename <database name>

to add your restored db. After it has been added delete the content db that was created when you created the web app.
