i am really new to sharepoint 2010 and i have just setup a fresh and new sharepoint 2010 server .
My task is to restore an old backup from the existing sp2010 server to the new one with completely different settings/pcservername and etc.
importantly and specificly i want to restore only the documents which I have uploaded , the sites which i have created and user permissions.
the settings to restore is overwhelming me. I have no clue what I am doing or how to use it.
my first try, i tried to restore everything but with mountains of errors and it created a duplicated database of different names on the new server. I had to uninstall and reinstall.
2nd try i tried to restore only the sharepoint-80 and i still can't get it restored without error. this time is some error with the schema version.
anyone can help me with the restoring work from one server to another with just the sites, documents and the users/permission ?
thanks in advance.
update : its running.. finally but at an extremely slow rate.. few megabytes/perminute...
update 2: managed to restore, login failure with domain accs/admin .. login is ok for sharepoint\admin .. any ideas ?
