Redirecting a restore of a SharePoint web application within a farm
Note the following when you redirect a web application within a farm:
The source web application cannot be a live web application.
The web application target to which you want to redirect the restore must already exist on the specified web server.
The target must have the same database structure as the source web application.
You can only redirect a web application from a full backup. Redirection is not supported from differential backups.
You can restore configuration databases and single sign-on databases back to the original location only. Document sets and individual SharePoint items must be restored to their original site. With SharePoint 2010 they can also be redirected to a file system.
You can redirect a restore of a web application within the same farm. The SQL database host and the SharePoint host must be the same. A redirected restore is not supported if the SQL databases exist across multiple SQL hosts.
You must restore all SQL databases in one operation at the same time.
To redirect a restore of a SharePoint web application within a farm
- Log on as Administrator.
- Create the target web application on the target web server. The target site must have the same database structure as the source site.
- Remove the source web application.
If you attempt the redirected restore without removing the source, the restore completes successfully, but the databases are not properly connected to the virtual server.
- Open the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
- Click File > Select Files and Folders to Restore > from Normal Backup.
- Select the MS-SharePoint policy type.
- From the NetBackup History pane, select the full backup image that contains the objects you want to restore.
- In the All Folders pane, expand Microsoft SharePoint Resources.
When you select items to restore, do not check the check box for an item in the All folders pane. Only check the check box for an item in the Contents of pane.
- In the Contents of pane, select the web application to redirect.
The following image shows a SharePoint 2010 restore.
- Click Actions > Restore.
- In the Restore Marked Files dialog box, click the Microsoft SharePoint tab.
- Check Redirect SharePoint Resources.
- Click Web application.
- In the URL box, type the URL of the destination site:
- In the Front end web server name box, indicate the host name of the web server.
