PS2010 Reprovision from 5DBs Managed Path RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks,

    I am trying to do a 5 DB restore via the normal process but the Site Collection in the Content Database has the path \sites\pwa rather than the more normal \pwa.

    Every time I reprovision a new Site Collection is created at \PWA and the old one is not reconencted to the PWA instance...

    Any ideas?

  • Hi Pratap,

    Looks like when first time PWA was provisioned you have provisioned it under \sites

    You can try exporting your PWA site collection using SharePoint  PowerShell and restore it on \PWA

    Backup-SPSite http://server_name/sites/PWA -Path C:\Backup\PWA.bak

    You could also use "unattached content database data recovery option from SharePoint Central Admin>>Backup and Restore>>Recover data from unattached content database

    Restore-SPSite http://server_name/PWA -Path C:\Backup\PWA.bak
