MOSS 2007 DRP – Disaster Recovery Plan

In MOSS 2007 we can take back by using stsadm utility.
But here i am doing it step by step using MOSS Central Administration
So, Let’s start…

1- Go to Central Administration -> Operations under backup and restore click perform backup

2- Select Farm’s checkbox to backup & click Continue to Backup Options
3- By selecting it you will select complete backup


4- Select type of backup Full or Differential
5- Mention the path to where to store backup file

6- File will be stored at given path with path with as folder name [spbr003] and spbtroc.xml file
Where 003 is auto number

Note: Please do not delete sptroc.xml file. It makes log of your MOSS 2007 backups. As xml file is showing list of your MOSS 2007 backups.

Following error will be displayed during backup restoration if it will not found sptroc.xml file.
