Recovery (SharePoint Server 2010)

Published: May 12, 2010

The articles in this section are written to meet the requirements of information technology (IT) professionals who are responsible for the planning, design, deployment, and operations of backup and recovery solutions. These solutions might be in enterprise, corporate, or branch office environments. The IT professionals who are responsible for backup and recovery solutions are expected to have an understanding of the technical details that are contained in this section. However, service-level expertise is not needed to understand the enterprise-level discussions and decisions.

Before you restore a farm, ensure that the following requirements are met:

  • To restore a farm by using the SharePoint Central Administration Web site, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators group.

  • To restore a farm by using Windows PowerShell, you must meet the following minimum requirements: See Add-SPShellAdmin.

  • The database server's SQL Server account, the Timer service account, and the Central Administration application pool account must have Read permissions to the backup locations. (The Timer service account and the Central Administration application pool account are usually the same.) The database server's SQL Server account must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.

  • Your login account must have Read permissions to the backup locations.

  • Ensure that the SharePoint Foundation Administration service is started on all farm servers. By default, this service is not started on stand-alone installations.

Consider the following before you restore a farm:

  • Restoring from one version of SharePoint Products and Technologies to a different version is not supported.

  • After recovery, search might take as long as 15 minutes to be available again. It can take longer than 15 minutes if the search system has to crawl all the content again. If you back up and restore the complete service, the system does not have to perform a full crawl.

  • You can only perform one recovery or one backup operation at a time.

Recover all or part of a farm

The following tasks for recovery are performed on the entire farm, farm databases, sites, subsites, or lists:
