About restores of SharePoint Server and SharePoint Foundation
Note the following when you perform restores:
The NetBackup for SharePoint Agent supports a restore to the same Microsoft service pack (SP) or cumulative update (CU) on which the backup was originally created. Microsoft sometimes introduces database schema changes in SPs or CUs. If you restore to a different SP or CU level, the database server may not operate correctly.
Administer restores from the NetBackup master server or the SharePoint front-end server.
When you select an item for restore, do not select (or mark) items in the All Folders pane. In the All Folders pane, click on, but do not select the check box for the parent folder. Then, in the Contents of pane, select the specific object you want to restore.
The Configuration database contains all of the configuration information for the entire SharePoint server farm. Use caution when you restore this database; upon restore, any changes are lost that you made to the farm topology after the backup was performed.
When you select for restore some but not all Content databases for a Web application, the Web application is not provisioned. After you restore the selected Content databases, those databases are re-attached.
Even if SharePoint components exist on multiple computers, all the backups are cataloged under the same SharePoint server name. Once you select that server name, all available backup images for your SharePoint environment are displayed.
When you redirect a restore to a file system, any list items you selected are not restored and appear as 0-KB files.
Restores that use GRT must be made from a disk storage unit. You cannot restore from the tape copy.
Granular recovery of the SharePoint Central Administration website and the Shared Services Administration website is not supported.
When you restore a site collection, any non-default theme you applied is not restored with the site collection. You must reapply the theme manually after the restore. This limitation does not affect restores of sub sites.
