Recovering SharePoint Content Database

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

The procedure to recover a SharePoint database is similar to how to recover a SQL Server database by using DPM. For more information about how to recover a SQL Server database, see Recovering SQL Server Data.

After a SharePoint database is recovered, it cannot be left in a recovering state.

To recover a mirrored database to its original instance of SQL Server, select the Recover to any SQL Instance option, and then, on the Specify Alternate Recovery Location page, specify the recovery destination path of the original instance of SQL Server.
