By Adam Jorgensen,

We were experiencing significant issues with Cross Domain Log Shipping, even after getting help from Microsoft. The main reason was that in SQL Server 2000 you cannot access the Log Shipping Wizard from a scripting interface. This set of stored Procedures is all you need to setup a good log shipping framework in your organization Two of them will be put into scheduled SQL SERVER AGENT JOBS to run and backup, copy and apply logs at a schedule you determine. If you are going Cross Domain, I suggest reading the FAQ on Security for Log Shipping from M$ as you will need a trust in AD for your Agent Users.
You will need to fill in your network shares, etc as variables in the stored procedures. Most of them take input variables for these and are pretty portable.
