How to have a complete backup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I search internet for how I can backup in sharepoint server 2007. In result I found vary methods to backup and recovery each item I want in in sharepoint server 2007, for example for “my site” I have 3 choice:

    1-      Backup from my site ssp

    2-      Backup from my site content database

    3-      Backup from my site collection

    My question is which of them can offer me complete backup? If I backup only my site content database and don’t backup my site ssp,what things I’m lost?

    Or for example if I want to backup from ssp databases,I have 3 choice:

    1-      Built-in sharepoint server 2007 tools

    2-      SQL Server tools

    3-      API tools such as VSS

    Also I have above question for this case, for example if I backup from ssp databases with Built-in sharepoint server 2007 tools,what things I’m lost? each of them give me complete backup or I have to use all of them together?

    and another question is: how I can backup customization in sharepoint server 2007 such as:workflow,webpart,master page, page layout , …

    with which tools?

    I'm very appriciated if anyone help me. thanx.

  • Right answer but wrong book.

    This is a pre-2010 forum so suggesting a 2010 book is off-topic (and besides which the OP clearly states that he is asking about SP 2007)

    The book he wants is the 2007 equivalent - http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1584505990/heme0f

  • You shouldn't come to the forums expecting immediate solutions.

    You don't by any means need to read the entire book at once. Just concentrate on the chapters on backup/restore.

    The questions you started this thread with are not ones that can be answered in a few sentences which is why you have been suggested a book.

    If you in such a hurry that you don't have the time to prepare correctly you should consider employing (= paying for) a consultant who has done this before. Microsoft Advisory Services would no doubt be willing to help at a price.

  • There are so many things to consider, I'd suggest you get this book: http://www.amazon.com/SharePoint-2010-Disaster-Recovery-Guide/dp/1435456459
