Backup and restore of SMS

Recommended Posts

Not at the moment no :unsure:


But here is a basic step by step:


1. Setup a new server, windows 2003, sql (if you are running on the same server). Note: use the same collation as you had in your previous sql

2. Install SMS 2003 with same configuration as old server

3. Run the recovery expert

4. Run the site repair wizard and point to the SMS backups folder


Note: Before running the SMS site repair wizard, will have to make sure to install all the applications related to SMS (like ITMU, OSD feature pack etc) which are all exist in the previous SMS environment.


I would recommend you to look at this information regarding backup and Recovery supplied by Microsoft:



If you have any questions after reading through that documentation please post them here.
