INTRODUCTION

In Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, restoration of the configuration database is not supported.

MORE INFORMATION

We do not support restoration of the configuration database in SharePoint Server 2007 and in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

If you restore the configuration database, data in the configuration database will not be synchronized with data in other SharePoint Server 2007 or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 databases.If this data is not synchronized, users may experience various random errors.

For example, a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 content database may contain data about a newer site. If the configuration database does not contain information about this site, the site is orphaned.

For more information about data protection and recovery in small to medium-sized deployments of SharePoint Server 2007, visit the following Microsoft TechNet Web site:
