First, that the backup isn't corrupt and can be restored. Restoring as you described will do that. Second, that the data inside the database isn't corrupt according to SQL. Running dbcc checkdb on the database will confirm that. However, there could be data inside the database that the application can't handle. If you're doing routine checks don't worry about this level. While the first two levels are easy to check this one is much more difficult to do so most people don't worry about doing it routinely. If you're trying to troubleshoot an issue you may need to point the application at it somehow and test to see if the issue still happens.Tue, 07 Jan 2014 06:44:09 GMTchrisfradenburgRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxTo complete what Grant said, if you do a restore of a backup and get no errors all is ok.Tue, 07 Jan 2014 06:22:26 GMTMichael MeierruthRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxThanks for the update,We have a 3rd party application that uses SQL 2008 R2 database, we Backup the production databases and then with a 3rd party application backup exec put them on the tape. I will restore one of these backup sets from tape to a network drive and then retore this .bak file on a developer machine. my question,How can I check the integrity of this restored database without using our 3rd application to read the data? or when restore process finish without any error this would means everything should work.ThanksTue, 07 Jan 2014 06:10:06 GMTShahinRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxWithout resorting to a third party software, you can't.

It has motivated me to revise my backup/restore plans. I now restore the production backup to my test DB immediately after backup, and use CHECKSUM as well.I'm not a reluctant DBA. But, as I wear many hats, I don't get to focus as much time on administration as I wish to. Articles like this keep me pointed in the right direction.Fri, 27 Dec 2013 08:55:49 GMTThomas AbrahamRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxHi Paul,Great article! I immediately checked my backups and realized that I was already doing this because WITH CHECKSUM is the default for compressed backups ([url=http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186865.aspx]http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186865.aspx[/url]). I just wanted to point that out as many people create their backups using the maintenance plans depending on the environment.-Derek StanleyFri, 27 Dec 2013 07:12:36 GMTSlevinRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspx[url=http://paulbrewer.wordpress.com/2013/10/12/database-restore-automation/]This is a link to a T-SQL and a PowerShell script that can be used to automate SQL Restores.

It includes a CHECKDB at the end, ignores WITH COPY_ONLY , allows overrides to restore file locations using WITH MOVE and so on. It's better than anything else available free I can find.Tue, 25 Dec 2012 15:24:54 GMTPaul BrewerRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxNice article.Tue, 25 Dec 2012 08:37:20 GMTNeha05RE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxNewbee ;Paul this is a very good article but one common trend here is educating the masses that require these backups . Would it be possible to providfe me with names of vitualisation tools which will aid in validating backs as well as restores.Thu, 08 Nov 2012 14:23:33 GMTSQL PGRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxYou must be corrupting a page that is not allocated - you need to figure out which page you're corrupting and then check it's allocation status using DBCC PAGE.For the backup, if you corrupt the backup header then restore verifyonly will catch that, with or without checksum.Sat, 29 Sep 2012 09:16:59 GMTPaul RandalRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspx[quote][b]Paul Randal (9/28/2012)[/b][hr]It's nothing to do with DBCC - it's the try/catch eating the errors being printed. No idea how to use that correctly - it has some weird behavior.Nothing changes the behavior of DBCC, but you're changing the way the DBCC output is consumed.All I said was after running DBCC, the value of @@error will be non-zero if errors were found.[/quote]Paul,OK, I confirm what you say about @@error after 'dbcc checkdb'.So now I can catch all 3 situations:dbcc checkdbbackup database with checksumrestore verifyonly with checksumand if something goes wrong I get an email - heaven forbid.:w00t:One thing that still leaves me a bit puzzled is that sometimes modifying a single byte somewhere in the database (MDF file) checkdb does not detect the database to be 'corrupt' (nor does backup with checksum). Maybe it's because the page is 'inactive', so I do a shrinkfile but I can still get this phenomena to occur. If every page (8192 bytes) in the file has a checksum then modifying a single byte at random should corrupt the database. I can only assume that not all pages get checked because they are 'not important' in some deep down technical sense.Regarding 'restore verifyonly', there seems to be no difference between having 'with checksum' and not having it. I can corrupt a backup and I get the same error message with 'with checksum' and without it. But I'm happy doing it with 'with checksum'.I will now stop corrupting things...:-)Sat, 29 Sep 2012 00:54:18 GMTMichael MeierruthRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxAnother significant problem with maintenance plans, well documented, is that the 'Verify Backups' check box doesn't translate to backups WITH CHECKSUM. It actuall runs a restore verify only immediately after the backup, I don't understand why they don't use WITH CHECKSUM (when possible) if this option is enabled.If you assume some responsibility for mature production database servers with maintenance plans that have been running for years, its difficult to make the case to management that they should all be replaced with T-SQL jobs so they can use CHECKSUM.Fri, 28 Sep 2012 12:47:05 GMTPaul BrewerRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspx[quote][b]Paul Randal (9/28/2012)[/b][hr]It's nothing to do with DBCC - it's the try/catch eating the errors being printed.

As I said, I don't use it often enough to understand why that happens, but it looks like TRY..CATCH has trouble handling multiple errors in one go.Michael: I ran my SP that I had posted against a broken DB, and b/c there is no TRY..CATCH involved, the Level 16 errors [b]do[/b] get dumped to the output table, which means you could then query that output table. The only reason I included the final TRY..CATCH in the SP is to handle the rare possibility that DBCC CHECKDB [b]itself[/b] fails b/c the DB errors are so severe.RichFri, 28 Sep 2012 12:45:47 GMTRich MechaberRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxIt's nothing to do with DBCC - it's the try/catch eating the errors being printed.

I have no idea, and I'll look forward to Paul Randal's reply. I just tried running your code block against a Broken database I downloaded from Paul's website and compared the output from a direct run [DBCC CHECKDB('broken')] with your code block (also checking DB 'broken'). I saved the output from both runs to text files and ran them through a text comparison utility; the direct run had the following lines in the output that were missing from the TRY..CATCH attempt:[code="plain"]Msg 8928, Level 16, State 1, Line 1Object ID 2073058421, index ID 0, partition ID 72057594038321152, alloc unit ID 72057594042318848 (type In-row data): Page (1:143) could not be processed.

This is on a 1GB database.Changing the first byte or a byte some where in the middle causes DBCC CHECKDB and BACKUP WITH CHECKSUM to fail.Changing the last byte or a byte 'near the end' generates no errors.This is true also of RESTORE VERIFYONLY WITH CHECKSUM. For this to generate an error I had to change a byte as far as 20% from the end. Interesting.Now I'm trying to catch errors using this simple code.declare @err intbegin try--dbcc checkdb('mydatabase')--restore verifyonly from disk='mydatabase.bak' with checksum end trybegin catchset @err=@@errorif @err<>0 select @errend catchRESTORE VERIFYONLY correctly shows error 3013.DBCC CHECKDB does not generate any red error messages. But if you run it all by itself the output shows red error messages.

Therefore, it's extremely unlikely that you could patent a stored-proc to perform backups/restores/consistency checks. Also, the amount of 'prior art' in the area would likely preclude any possibility of you being able to claim originality. And then you'd have to pay a patent lawyer to convert the idea into patent language, and file with the relevant patent offices. It's an expensive, tortuous process that I'm glad Microsoft funded for my patents.Give your proc away for free - you won't make money from it.Thu, 27 Sep 2012 13:24:12 GMTPaul RandalRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxThe Ola Hallengren maintenance scrips create SQL Agent jobs that use sqlcmd to instantiate the backup and maintenance procedures he has written.

I am from INDIA.Hope to see some helpful steps from your end.Thanks.[/quote]Well, I can only assume your idea deals with backing up databases. If not, then please start a new topic.I don't know much about patents except that the whole issue of patents has pretty much run out of control - everywhere. Not to mention Apple vs Samsung. You have now motivated me to dig into that story and exactly how the Apple patents were violated by Samsung.But your question has raised many questions in my mind. Thus what you want to patent is not a stored procedure but an idea. This means that once your idea becomes public, anyone with some sql skills (say a million or so people) can propabily write the stored procedure that does exactly what your idea proposes. In your opinion, would this violate the patent? But what if I write a stored procedure that does the same thing, but is 10 times faster than yours. Or what if I write a process, not using an sql stored procedure, that does the same thing 50 times faster. Or what if I write something that does the same thing but is 3 times better than your idea?In any case, in my opinion, patenting stored procedures is no way to become rich quickly. And besides, this is a forum where you share things.Thu, 27 Sep 2012 12:14:54 GMTMichael MeierruthRE: The Importance of Validating Backupshttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1363312-2616-1.aspxHithis one is really a needed article.But apart from this I want to know one thing, that is I have a store procedure made by myself for (xyz thing) "sorry can't disclose it", so how can i get that patented to my name?

I did a bit of research into this and found a very useful website (now 404) and info. from Paul Randal (including some very useful deliberately mangled databases that can be used for testing). Based on that -- and much testing and some painful code failures :ermm: -- I put together the following SP. It will run DBCC CHECKDB for every database on the server (with some hard-coded exceptions; change this to suit your needs) and send an HTML-formatted email to you if it finds any errors. There's just one input parameter: your email address.There's a lot of text in the notes section at the top that might be useful to you, including what the shortcomings of using a maintenance plan are, info. on the returned data types from CHECKDB, web links to relevant materials, etc. Note that one of Paul's broken databases deliberately produces a serious enough error that it will prevent the rest of the SP from running for other databases (see notes); to handle situations like that, I wrapped the DBCC CHECKDB in a TRY..CATCH so that I will be notified separately that the script didn't execute and I need to investigate pronto.It's been a while since I built this, and if folks here have suggestions or find problems, I'd appreciate hearing about them.[code="sql"]USE [DBA]GOSET ANSI_NULLS ONGOSET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ONGOCREATE PROC Run_CHECKDB @email VARCHAR(8000)AsBEGIN/* Utility SP to run DBCC against a hardcoded list of DBs and report any found errors.

Why needed? See notes below. There are problems using a maintenance plan task.INPUTS: @email - a [;]-delimited list of recipients to be notified if errors foundHARD-CODED: curDB - Cursor w/ WHERE clause of databases to in/exclude. Modify below as needed.NOTES: Overview - Create a cursor of databases and run DBCC for each. - Run DBCC WITH TABLERESULTS, NO_INFOMSGS to generate a table of output. - Encapsulate everything in TRY...CATCH b/c of the possibility of fatal errors when running DBCC CHECKDB against severely corrupted DBs. - Though I initially coded this to save the results to a temp table, I decided I'd like to have each day's output saved to the DB for later querying if errors were reported. DBCC CHECKDB reporting sucks. - There's no easy way to save/report the results. - If you just run DBCC CHECKDB maint. plan as an agent job and if CHECKDB finds any DB errors, a "failed job step" is logged in msdb, which isn't really true. This results in an unnecessary report from the Failed Job Steps agent job. - Furthermore, a maint. plan "notify operator task" is based on the success/failure of CHECKDB reports for ALL databases; no way to report on specific database success/failure. - Another problem w/ maint. plans: no way to script a dynamic list of databases to EXclude. You specify which ones to INclude, but if you later add new databases, they won't be included automatically. - Even using the method in this SP, there's nothing online about what all the columns mean, nor how to easily identify rows that represent a true error. Corrections to website/datatypes - Several column definitions from the website are wrong, others may be too.... - Which raises another problem with DBCC CHECKDB: As confirmed by Paul Randall (lost the URL...), there is NO complete published list of the output data types. Not listed in BOL either. Grrrrrr... Testing - Tested against production and corrupted databases from Paul Randal's website: http://sqlskills.com/pastConferences.asp - One of his corrupted DBs, DemoFatalCorruption2, deliberately fails so bad that it terminates DBCC CHECKDB early, preventing subsequent databases from being run and which would cause the agent execution to log a failed job step. It returns simply: "Possible schema corruption. Run DBCC CHECKCATALOG." So, use TRY...CATCH w/ an error-handler to terminate gracefully and warn the DBA. How to return just the errors from DBCC? - Running DBCC CHECKDB WITH NO_INFOMSGS excludes the rows we're not interested in, so use that. - Before I found the WITH NO_INFOMSGS option, I tried various WHERE clauses to return just the errors from the table results. I could not find any consistent way to identify just the rows reporting errors. The only sure way I could determine was to look for the last lines of the report output, which are: LIKE 'CHECKDB found%' AND NOT LIKE 'CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 0 consistency errors%' See superseded code in comments at bottom if interested.*/SET NOCOUNT ONDECLARE @db NVARCHAR(128);DECLARE @html VARCHAR(MAX);DECLARE @CrLf CHAR(2);SET @CrLf = CHAR(13) + CHAR(10);IF OBJECT_ID('DBCCResults', 'U') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE DBCCResults; -- Drop and recreate (instead of just TRUNCATE) so we can easily change column list & type below if more turn out to be incorrect.CREATE TABLE DBCCResults(-- Columns I added to make reporting easier: RunDateTime DATETIME DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, ObjectName NVARCHAR(128), DBName NVARCHAR(128),-- Columns matching DBCC WITH TABLERESULTS [Error] [int] NULL, [Level] [int] NULL, [State] [int] NULL, [MessageText] [varchar](7000) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL, [RepairLevel] NVARCHAR(128) NULL, -- Website incorrectly had this as INT.
