Two important KB articles released recently relating to backup and restore

Two important KB articles have been released recently that relate to the important topic of backup and recovery.

Stsadm can inadvertently delete a root site collection if erroneous URL path used - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/968474

After using stsadm -o restore with the -overwrite parameter and getting an error you notice a site one level up from the site you were trying to restore is deleted.  The root level site http://servername is deleted. The site that you were attempting to restore was http://servername/sites/sitename

This can happen if you pass an invalid URL to the stsadm –o restore command, for example http://servername/site/sitename instead of the correct URL of http://servername/sites/sitename

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 unsupported scenarios using stsadm -o export /import of subsites - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968483

In basic terms you cannot use stsadm –o import to restore a sub-site to a root site collection if the publishing feature is enabled, this procedure is generally used to re-organize content.

The supported method to achieve this is to restore is to restore the sub-site to a sub-site within a site collection that has the publishing feature enabled and then copy across any master pages or page layouts that the sub-site relies on to the destination site collection.
