Hello all,

I have a database on a hosted server in which the administartor
made a backup copy of my database and put it in my root FTP folder
so I could download it.

I need to restore it to my own server but have no option to point
to the .bak file using the restore wizard. (since it was never on this server yet ??) Can someone tell me how I can use the .bak file to copy the database to my new server?

Thanks in advance,

Arlene

RESTORE DATABASE DBName
FROM DISK = 'C:\Backup.BAK'
WITH REPLACE, MOVE 'DBName_Data' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\DBName_Data.MDF',
MOVE 'DBName_Log' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\DBName_Log.LDF'

So IOW, use RESTORE DATABASE in Query Analyzer. To do it inside Enterprise Manager, select from device on the first screen.

I get the following error:

Server: Msg 3101, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use.
Server: Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

How can I put the DB in user only mode? Is this what I need to do?

Thanks

You need to disconnect whoever is connected to it. You can issue a KILL under the spid. Do a sp_who in Query Analyzer to see who is connected.

Killed the spid and it did not work, still said the same thing. Stopped the server, rebooted and it killed the process.

however, no I get the following error:

Server: Msg 3234, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Logical file 'storeshop_Data' is not part of database 'storeshop'. Use RESTORE FILELISTONLY to list the logical file names.
Server: Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

I do not have a database named storeshop yet so I do not know what
it is referring to.

any ideas?

Thanks for all your help

You'll need to run RESTORE FILELISTONLY in order to work this out:

RESTORE FILELISTONLY
FROM DISK = 'C:\Backup.BAK'

Post the results here and we'll be able help write the correct RESTORE DATABASE command for you.

Thanks, here are the results from Query Analyzer:



computerscripts E:\Webspace\support\storeshop\storeshop_Data.mdf D PRIMARY 1441792 35184372080640
computerscripts_log E:\Webspace\support\storeshop\storeshop_log.LDF L NULL 1048576 35184372080640


The path above is the old path from my other web hosting company.

SORRY, THE ABOVE POST WAS WRONG FROM CUTTING OTHER CLIPBOARD ACTIVITY: HERE IS THE CORRECT ONE:

Thanks, here are the results from Query Analyzer:

storeshop_log E:\Webspace\support\storeshop\storeshop_log.LDF L NULL 1048576 35184372080640

So here is what you need to do based upon the above results:

RESTORE DATABASE Storeshop
FROM DISK = 'C:\Backup.BAK'
WITH REPLACE, MOVE 'storeshop' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\Storeshop_Data.MDF'
MOVE 'storeshop_log' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\Storeshop_Log.LDF'

In the above, you will need to modify three things: the path and filename to your backup file, the path where you want the MDF file to be located, and the path where you want the LDF file to be located. For the last two edits, these directories must exist in order for it to work, so create them if you need to.

Get the following error. I triple checked it and its correct so I do not know
why it is doing this:

Server: Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Line 4: Incorrect syntax near 'MOVE'.

Oops, missing a comma:

RESTORE DATABASE Storeshop
FROM DISK = 'C:\Backup.BAK'
WITH REPLACE, MOVE 'storeshop' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\Storeshop_Data.MDF',
MOVE 'storeshop_log' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\Storeshop_Log.LDF'

I know this is an old thread but I just want to know if anybody can help me figure out why this restore script wont work


RESTORE FILELISTONLY

FROM DISK = 'D:\temp\vernonstoragecenter_db_200601270401.BAK'

RESTORE DATABASE vernonstoragecenter

FROM DISK = 'D:\temp\vernonstoragecenter_db_200601270401.BAK'

WITH RECOVERY,

MOVE 'vernonstoragecenter_data' TO 'D:\MSSQL\Datafiles\data\vernonstoragecenter_data.mdf',

MOVE 'vernonstoragecenter_log' TO 'D:\MSSQL\Datafiles\data\vernonstoragecenter_log.ldf'

GO




This is the error I am getting


Error -2147217900
Cannot open backup device 'D:\temp\vernonstoragecenter_db_200601270401.BAK'. Device error or device off-line. See the SQL Server error log for more details.

RESTORE FILELISTONLY

FROM DISK = 'D:\temp\vernonstoragecenter_db_200601270401.BAK'

RESTORE DATABASE vernonstoragecenter

FROM DISK = 'D:\temp\vernonstoragecenter_db_200601270401.BAK'

WITH RECOVERY,

MOVE 'vernonstoragecenter_data' TO 'D:\MSSQL\Datafiles\data\vernonstoragecenter_data.mdf',

MOVE 'vernonstoragecenter_log' TO 'D:\MSSQL\Datafiles\data\vernonstoragecenter_log.ldf'

GO

According to my host I am on the d:/ drive

Now I should also mention that this is a bak file given to me and I ftp ed it onto the site into the temp folder so I can do the restore

I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT SQL (not my field but I might have to learn)

HERE is Solution:

STep 1:
RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK = 'D:\YourDatabase.bak'

this will generate a logical file e.g XYZDatabase

Step 2:
RESTORE DATABASE NEWDatabaseName FROM DISK = 'D:\YourDatabase.bak'
WITH MOVE 'XYZDatabase' TO 'c:\XYZDatabase.mdf',
MOVE 'XYZDatabase_log' TO 'c:\XYZDatabase.ldf'

So, It will restore and create new database.
Plz check and reply (if u dont mind)
Have a Nice Day.

I have tried all listed methods above.

The error I am getting after I run any of the following attempts below is:

Msg 3132, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
The media set has 2 media families but only 1 are provided. All members must be provided.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

What I have attempted:


RESTORE FILELISTONLY
FROM DISK = 'c:\stratagen_dw.bak'

RESTORE DATABASE Stratagen_DW
FROM DISK = 'c:\stratagen_dw.bak'
WITH MOVE 'Stratagen_dw' TO 'c:\stratagen_dw.mdf',
MOVE 'Stratagen_dw_log' TO 'c:\stratagen_dw_log.ldf'

Or I have tried to:

RESTORE DATABASE Stratagen_DW
FROM DISK = 'c:\stratagen_dw.bak'
WITH REPLACE, MOVE 'Stratagen_DW' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\Stratagen_DW.MDF',
MOVE 'Stratagen_DW_Log' TO 'C:\MSSQL\DATA\Stratagen_DW_Log.LDF'

Cheers,

Laura

NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10
GO
