About selecting SharePoint 2003 resources for restore

Backup Exec provides the following hierarchical tree views of SharePoint resources in the Selections tree when using the Resource View:

Table: Hierarchical tree view

Node name

Node description

Server Farm node

Represents a logical view of the topology for the SharePoint resources that have been backed up from the farm. The name that displays for this node matches the name you defined for the server farm in Backup Selections under the Microsoft SharePoint Server Farms node. If you expand the nodes for each SharePoint component that appears in this view, the backup sets for that component are displayed and can be selected for restore.

Individual Server nodes

Displays the SharePoint components that resided locally on the server when they were backed up. If you expand the nodes for each SharePoint component that appears in this view, the backup sets for that component are displayed and can be selected for restore. Each server from which SharePoint components were backed up contains a Microsoft SharePoint Resources node.

You can restore the following resources:

  • Portal sites and their associated databases: each portal site has a minimum of three databases: Content databases, Services databases, and User Profile databases. Symantec recommends that you restore these databases together to preserve the topology.

  • Windows SharePoint Services sites and their associated databases

  • Document library stores (Web Storage System-based)

  • Individual documents that are contained in Document or Picture libraries (Web Storage System-based or Microsoft SQL Server-based)

  • Sites and sub-sites

    Individual objects and their versions can be restored from full database backups.

  • Lists and list items

    Individual objects can be restored from full database backups.

    See the Microsoft SharePoint documentation for more information about lists and list items.

  • Configuration database: the Configuration database contains all of the configuration information for the entire SharePoint Server farm. Use caution when restoring this database because any changes made to the farm topology after the backup from which you are restoring will be lost. For more information, refer to the Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 documentation. You can only restore the Configuration database back to the original location.

  • Single Sign-on databases: you can only restore Single Sign-on databases back to the original location.
