To recover Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 SSP Search

  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 the Shared Services Provider (SSP) components for the Microsoft Office SharePoint farm.

    ImportantImportant
    If you recover the data to the original location, you must delete the SSP and its index files from the original location before you proceed with recovery. This must be done even if the default SSP uses 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 command on the protected computer with the KeepIndex parameter to ensure that the index file is not reset during the process of recreating the SSP.

  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.
