Sharepoint Restore with stsadm command


Yes the stsadm is running as an administrator that is an account on the SQL Server logins


I have backed up existing sharepoint site 2007 on Windows Server 2003 with SQL Server 2005 to be restores on Windows Server 2008R2 with SQL Server 2008R2 after installation of Sharepoint 2007 and created a web application.

I am using the stsadm -o restore -url http://dev1 -filename C:\BkUp\Polestar.dat -overwrite this goes on for just over an hour with out error suddenly an error appears .. unable to complete action please try again.
In the event log of the Server this is the error  Cannot connect to SQL Server. DEV1 not ... [DBNETLIB][ ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied

I have enabled the TCP\IP googled and uninstalled and reinstalled Sharepoint 2007 again
Start restore again error pops up again.

PLEASE HELP we need the site for our development environment.

Thanks in advance

Perhaps off topic, but why not do a SQL Server backup of the original content DB, create a new site, move the SQL Backup over, overwrite content database via a SQL Restore?

Don't need to use the SP backup mechanisms to do this.

The solution helped me pass the initial static phase where I was not able to proceed.

The site restored but it is not displayed as in original site but I am investigating to see why?
