I have setup log shipping for a couple of my databases (SQL 2008). I would like keep any additional logins created on the primary database in sync with the log shipping server. I would like to use the SSIS transfer logins task to accomplish this goal and run via a SQL Agent job. However, when I run the job I get the following error.

[Transfer Logins Task] Error: Execution failed with the following error: "Database 'DBNAME' cannot be opened. It is in the middle of a restore.".

I have the following settings on the task:


If objects exist = Skip

CopySids = True

I understand the logins cant be added while the database is restoring. Is there anyway around this issue?

Here's an article I wrote a while back. Was written for SQL 2005, but it also applies to newer versions.
