Error while restoring sharepoint backup. The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I am trying to restore sharepoint site (in windows 2008 64 bit) from the backup file (windows 2003 32 bit) but i am getting the fallowing error. I also tried to increase the database size, tried attach different content database and also tried this command stsadm -o databaserepair -url http://moss201090 -databasename MOSS2010\SharePoint -deletecorruption, but no use.

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue

  • Were both farms the same version?  You mentioned a Win2k3 32bit server which would indicate MOSS 2007.  Your db name and this forum relates to 2010.  Are you trying to restore to a different version of SharePoint?

    If they are the same major version, are they also the same minor version (patch level)?

  • you cannot run a restore action for a SharePoint 2007 backup into a 2010 farm.  Instead you need to look at the standard upgrade paths:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ee517214.aspx
