Restore-SBFarm - How to make this work? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've read through some docs on the restore-sbfarm cmdlet, which according to Microsoft does the same as new-sbfarm except with existing databases (full of data one would assume). Restore-SBFarm

    I have tried to do this, but I keep running into an existing database error. If you try to use new-sbfarm against an existing set of databases you will get a 'database...is already configured' error. Fair enough, but I am getting this with the restore-sbfarm command.

    Restore-SBFarm -GatewayDBConnectionString "Data Source=10.xx.xx.22;Initial Catalog=SbGatewayDatabase;User ID=servicebusfarm;Password=xxxx"
    -SBFarmDBConnectionString "Data Source=10.xx.xx.22;Initial Catalog=SbManagementDB;User ID=servicebusfarm;Password=xxxx"
    -FarmCertificateThumbprint '35B05CA7404141FD82142C0l9815456537' -RunAsAccount Administrator -CertificateAutoGenerationKey $CertKey

    It then throws this:

    Restore-SBFarm : Cannot validate argument on parameter
    'SBFarmDBConnectionString'. The database (SbManagementDB) located at SQL
    Server (10.xx.xx.22) is already configured.

    I have tried a different certkey password, which I believe is used to encrypt the contents? All of the other parameters should be OK.
