How can i take complete backup of WSS3.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed wss30.0 with all the default options selected through sharepoint technology and configuration wizard in SBS2008. I then used central administration to to back up complete farm level. Now i am not sure if it will backup everything that i need to restore it later if i have any issue. Also can any one let me know if it will restore the calender entries as well?

    When i do complete backup i get the following error in windows sharepoint services search:

    My question: does that have any effect on the backup?

    Object b1a8efed-f249-410f-92f3-0477674aca90 failed in event OnBackup. For more information, see the error log located in the backup directory. InvalidOperationException: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchBackupRestoreTimerJob.Execute(Guid targetInstanceId)

  • I think this affects your backup. Double check that Farm Account has an access to all WSS databases.

  • I would rely on a full database backup and file system backup of the web servers. The database would contain all information related to content of the site and configuration.

    If you have a database backup of the content database, you will need to restore the database which will retrieve your calendar entries as well.

    Hope this helps.
