I have recently taken on responsability for the database part of our Sharepoint solution. From looking at the documentation there are instructions on how to move from the primary to the secondary server. However as we are using this for the DR solution what I trying to find out is how once you have migrated to the secondary server that you can move back to the orginal primary server. An example of when we would need to do this would be over a weekend when SAN maintenance is being done we would want to temporairly migrate to the DR site while the work was being done and then to migrate back again to the original server.

Yes, Failing over to the Secondary server and then failback to the original server is possible in Log-Shipping. Please see this helpful video on how to do it . This might help you on what you are doing.

Log shipping role changes are fully supported, see this Microsoft link for details of how to set this up correctly.

Have you looked into the possibility of using Mirroring ? I think that would be an easier option here.

Cheers
