Excellent tip to "trick" SQL into thinking we did a full backup/restore of the DB to be able to move the new database file.

Cheers,

nice article. one question?

in your backup TLog statement did you mean to say....

BACKUP DATABASE AdventureWorks TO DISK = '\\hanode1\backup\AdventureWorks_createnewfile.trn' WITH INIT



?

Hi
well spotted, no the backup and the restore statement should read

BACKUP LOG
RESTORE LOG

nice article Perry and very useful info.

I think the lesson to take away though is to set your live and failover servers up with exactly the same drive\directory structures in the first place. :-)

George I couldn't agree more, although sometimes you may inherit a system and will have to roll with it. This is especially for these types of systems
