Description of the 2007 Office suite SP3 and of Office Language Pack 2007 SP3

The 2007 Microsoft Office suite Service Pack 3 (SP3) and Microsoft Office Language Pack 2007 SP3 provide the latest updates to the 2007 Office suite and to Office Language Pack 2007. These updates include two main categories of fixes:

  • Previously unreleased fixes that were made specifically for this service pack. In addition to general product fixes, this includes improvements in stability, in performance, and in security.
  • All the public updates, security updates, cumulative updates, and hotfixes that were released through September 2011.

Because Office service packs are cumulative, you do not have to install Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 before you install Service Pack 3. Service Pack 3 includes all fixes which were included in Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2.

A Question about Backup and Restore


I’ve recreated our SharePoint 2003 site to MOSS 2007 using SQL Server 2000, note that all services of MOSS 2007 is running in a single server including SQL 2000. Now I’ve backup MOSS 2007 (entire server farm) and tried restoring it to a new machine (MOSS 2007 using SQL Server 2008). The type of restore i used is New Configuration.

This is the error i’ve encountred:
Error: Object Shared Search Index failed in event OnRestore. For more information, see the error log located in the backup directory. InvalidOperationException: The new indexer must be enabled and installed

Any idea what went wrong.

My Response

The most probable reason for this error is that your Search Service was not running when you did your restore.  I am sure all other restore had gone successful other than search index.  Just configure your SharePoint Search Service and run a full crawl or redo the backup after starting the search. 

Final Response from the Guy

Thanks a lot for your guidance sir,
You are guru of share point, problem has resolved after stared the Search service it has restored successfully without any error and warning.
