Full Farm Backup of WSS 3.0
05-Aug-2013 7:09 PM
Backup and Restore
To back up WSS 3.0 through Central Administration, you must be logged in as a member of the Farm Administrator group.
Also you can check out my previous posts on:
Bind dropdownlist from SharePoint list in InfoPath 2010
Get list level content types using SharePoint 2010 client object model
Delete all rows of a repeating table in InfoPath 2010 programmatically
Follow the below steps
First you will need to open the Central Administration.
Click the Operations tab.
In the Backup and Restore section, click Perform a Backup.
To back up the entire farm, click the Farm check box. Once you do, all the check boxes below Farm will be checked automatically, and the entire region will be highlighted in blue.
Click the Continue To Backup Options button.
In the Backup Content section, leave the default setting of Farm, and for the Type Of Backup setting, leave the Full radio button selected.
In the Backup File Location section, enter a file path where you can save your backup file. Whenever possible, it is a good idea to save these files on a server share outside the farm but where they’re accessible to the WSS 3.0 server.
Make certain that the account you are logged in with, the SQL service account (if you are backing up a standalone server, the server computer account instead), and the farm account all have at least read and write access to the backup location. Also make sure the account is a member of the db_owner database role on all the databases that need an upgrade, as this can cause your upgrade to fail.
Just below the Backup Location file path you will see Estimated Disk Space Required. If you have any concerns about whether you have enough disk space on your file share to save the backup files, you can compare the amount of free space you have to the Estimated Disk Space Required.
Click the OK button. The backup
At the top of the page is a summary displaying information such as the phase, top component, number of warnings, and errors that have occurred. Below the summary you will find a listing of all the components being backed up and the progress of each. The information on the page is refreshed automatically every 30 seconds.
You will know when the backup job has completed when the summary at the top of the page shows the Phase as Completed and shows the Progress as Completed for each of the components in the list.
