Hi,

My sharepoint in server A is http://server_A:4596

I ran from the Server_A:
stsadm.exe -o backup -url http://server_A -directory c:\bkp -backupmethod full

When I try to restore it on Server_B:
stsadm.exe -o restore -directory c:\backup -restoremethod overwrite

I receive an error  WSS_Content in event  OnPostRestore.

Did a miss a step ?

Thank you

Racy

1. You need to specifiy a file name in the -directory switch.  C:\bkp\site.bak
2. You need to copy the .bak file to the destination server
3. On the restore command, you need to specify the file name and the -URL switch.

Sorry, forget the above.  Since you are doing a SITE backup, use the following format:

stsadm -o backup

   -url <URL name>

   -filename <file name>


Same with restore, just change to -o restore.

I posted the link so you would use the correct format of the command. It seems like you are guessing. I didn't understand your last post about using directory and filename switches.
