Attempts to restore entire SharePoint 2010 Farm fail

Problem

When attempting to restore an entire SharePoint 2010 Farm in a single restore job, the job fails with the following error:

 

Error Message

An error occurred while connecting the restored databases to the Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server Farm. The portal was not restored.


 

 

Cause

This error is expected because Backup Exec does not support the restore of an entire Sharepoint farm in a single restore job. 

Solution

 If multiple Sharepoint resources must be restored, it is best to perform the restores of Sharepoint resources separately. See Related Articles for document related to Sharepoint restore best practices.  If a restore of the entire Sharepoint server or farm is required, use the Disaster Recovery restore process contained within the Backup Exec Administrators Guide.
