Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2007

How to Recover a MOSS Index

  1. Start the Recovery wizard from the DPM Administrator Console.

  2. Select the point in time from which you want to recover data. The Recovery wizard displays SSP components for the SharePoint farm.

    ImportantImportant
    If you are recovering to the original location, you must delete the SSP and its index files from the original location before proceeding with recovery. This must be done even if it is the default SSP using the -Force parameter. The location details of these files are available on the Summary page of the Recovery wizard.

  3. After the recovery process is completed, you must run RestoreSSP on the protected computer with the KeepIndex parameter to ensure that the index file is not reset during the process of recreating the SSP.

How to Recover an Index with Mirrored Database in MOSS

In the case where the MOSS farm uses a mirrored database, you cannot recover the index to the original location. In this case, you must recover the individual components of the index and manually reattach them to the instance of SQL Server.

  1. Break the mirroring session of the mirrored SSP databases.

  2. Start the Recovery wizard from DPM Administrator Console.

  3. Select the point in time from which you want to recover data.
    The Recovery wizard displays SSP components for the SharePoint farm.

  4. Recover the individual items to a temporary location and then host the databases to the instance of SQL Server manually.

  5. Run RestoreSSP on the protected computer with the KeepIndex parameter to ensure that the index file is not reset during the process of recreating the SSP.
