    I recently moved our blogs from an external vendors server to an internal server.

    I installed a new install of WordpressMU on the new server.
    Copied all the old server files to backups & restored them on the new server.
    I updated the wp-config file to define the new url & home.
    I updated the db table (wp-options) & home field to reflect the new internal address.

    Now I when I start the blog from home, it goes immediately to this page & shows the following error:

    http://10.10.240.111:22/pub/res/blogs/wp-admin/install.php
    ===========================================================

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_site_admin() in /export/home/content/xxxxxx.xxx/htdocs/pub/res/blogs/wp-includes/capabilities.php on line 922

    Any HELP would be appreciated...

    If you restore your backups onto the new server, you don't need a new install in there as well. You need to get back to just having exactly the same files as you did to start with.

    Also, you don't say anything about having created the database on the new server, granted the necessary permissions, and restored the data. Has that been done?
