backup restore options for wss 3.0 on windows server 2003
Posted on 2013-01-23
I've inherited a sharepoint site and am very novice about administering it. Until last week, it was backing up via carbonite offsite but now we switched to Mozy pro and it's failing.
I'm getting vss sql writer errors in vss admin that's why that's occuring i'm guessing.
I tried doing a full farm backup in wss 3.0 console and that fails without backing up.
I'm also interested in using stsadm.exe to do site collection backups if possible. (I need to know what url to use for this and where and default directory is for this?
Once I have a good backup then i'd like to use a script invoked by windows secheduled tasks to do a full and then differential backups on a two week schedule.
I have pretty limited space on the drives and the full farm is 18GB.
