Recovering SharePoint 2007? RRS feed

  • Pregunta

  • Hi All,

    We lost our standalone MS Office SharePoint 2007 intranet server (Windows Server 2003 blue screen of death which looks a total re-install job).

    No backups were even done..... 

    From the hard drive I recovered the SQL Server 2005 Express database files (MDF's & LDF's):

    SharedServices1_DB_a961d9ce-4b84-432d-8e1a-f65049d85a49.mdf
    SharedServices1_Search_DB_92afad8e-9d21-4c87-ab4e-24e2b898204f.mdf
    SharedServicesContent_99e735c5-960f-44dd-8337-d6479209da0a.mdf
    SharePoint_AdminContent_5f8fe7f3-ed2a-4aea-9f0d-65cd9d7bc09f.mdf
    SharePoint_Config_d222d95d-9343-4472-af43-62bd4dfb4a6b.mdf
    WSS_Content.mdf
    WSS_Search_<servername>.mdf

    I have installed SharePoint on a test server, where I can attach the MDF files within SQL Server.

    I've Google'd a number of websites on how to restore the data in to SharePoint, but the information seems contradictory... Some say restore the Config database 1st via the SharePoint Config wizard, others say to deploy a default Config database then restore the Content database via the command prompt after creating a default web app.

    Either way, I run into errors...

    At the command prompt I run:

    stsadm -o addcontentdb -url http://<servername> -databasename wss_content -databaseserver <servername>

    This produces the result:

    The specified SPContentDatabase Name=wss_content Parent=SPDatabaseServiceInstance has been upgraded to a newer version of SharePoint. Please upgrade this SharePoint application server before attempting to access this object.


    Can someone please help me with some clear steps?

    Thanks in advance.
