I am having a requirement to restore my SharePoint 2010 SP1 backup to previous Sharepoint 2010 version. I googled a lot but hav't found any suitable answer for this. At last one of mine senior suggested me to change the version number of content database in SQL server in version table, and then take the backup of this content database and restore it on the earlier version of SharePoint. I did the same changed the version in version table of content database and restored the backup on earlier version of the SharePoint. Now I took the site collection backup (using SharePoint management shell Backup-SPSite) of this SharePoint system and tried to restore it on the new earlier version of SharePoint, but got the error "The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space." there is enough space in my machine.
Now, I tried to install SharePoint SP1 on my system where I restored the backup of content database, when I run the SharePoint Products configuration wizard I get the following error
"Task upgrade has failed with a PostSetupConfigurationTaskException An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException was thrown. Additional exception information: Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products."
Kindly help me in this.
