Over the next few days we are going to start the migration to a new forum
application. I'm going to start with high post count and active users. You may
receive an invitation to the new forums. It's not spam. It's just me trying to
seed the user base. My goal is to open it up over the weekend.
Once we open the site we'll block registrations here. We should be open
shortly on the new site.
The .trn seems to be a SQL Server transactional log backup. I restored the .bak file only, but I dont see the data that I see on the production database. Is the reason related to the fact that I did not restore .trn file? If I need to restore .trn file now, how can I do that? Is this going to resolve the problem and the data will be similar to the production database?
yes, you must have take the backup of the log file as well then u will be able to restore the log file. At the time of backup u need to take backup of the both files backup and log then follow steps to restore database with log file.
