hello friends

i need your help in sharepoint backup

our sharepoint backups are not working any more

there are two front end server  (NLB) and 2 sql db server (clustered)

nbu 7.0.1


backup fails with either 71 or 13 or 2

random error

in past during one of same instance, support had found that there was issue with one of front end server so we configured backup using node name

we got both frotn end server analyzed by microsoft team and is now working

we want to shoft our backsup to virtual name back. Doing this should not prevent me restoring old data? or will it.

hi rrokkzz

Recalls me one of nightmare.

To sum it up in short, do sync with SharePoint if during troubleshooint , did MS applied SP1 on SharePoint as it is not supported with NBU 7.0.1

Most common issue i found with many of my customers where backupadmins are unaware of Application/DB gets patched by latest Service Pack

For your Second query

I believe there won't be any issues in restoring legacy data, You can simply change client name to webapp (virtual name)

Prior to that do verify User account is updated with requirement permissions (SharePoint Admin) and you can do remote registry from front end to back end server

Check if you can see SharePoint resoures under BAR.

Above might not work as expected if SharePoint is updated with SP1

You need to have atleast NBU or better upgrade NBU to latest

Now we have sharePoint on 2010 SP1
