Granular SharePoint restore - Database upgrade required

Post by lightsout »

All,

I hope this is a simple question.

I'm running VB&R 7 on Server 2012 with SQL 2012. I'm trying to do a granular restore from SharePoint 2007 on SQL 2005 server. When I open the database to restore I get:
The selected SharePoint database has to be upgraded to be open in the specified Microsoft SQL 2012 ('BLAH' instance). After the database upgrade, older versions of SQL Server will not be able to open this database. Do you want to continue?
My question is - is this upgraded database get sent back to the backup themselves? Or is it essentially discarded once the granular restore is completed?

Basically, I don't want to upgrade it if there is any risk to a future VM based restore of the server.

Thanks!

Backup files are never touched during restore. The database from the mounted backup file (under C:\VeeamFLR folder) will be upgraded, the backup file itself will be left intact.

Ok, good to have that confirmed. Just wanted to be sure. So I did that, and now I get another error:
Specified database is not a support SharePoint content database
Doing restores from our SharePoint 2010/SQL 2008R2 farm works fine, it is just this older version that has issues.

Sorry, I should have noticed that earlier, Microsoft SharePoint 2007 is not among the supported platforms. Only Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint 2013 are supported.
