Option with STSADM
Posted on 2013-01-29
General Question, I am thinking of using STSADM.EXE to make Backup of Sites on a sharepoint server, and then using an offsite backup service like Carbonite, Crashplan, Etc. To back them up in the cloud.
The idea being if the server/building has a problem, I can pull the STSADM file and crack it open some way and work on restoring the data.
What is the feasibility of this? What would I need to do the restore? I imagine I would need at least a spare machine running WSS or something similar.
