I have restored a database to a new name. The original name is forms. The new database is forms_scott(Restoring). When I try to restore a log:

RESTORE LOG [forms_scott] FROM DISK = N'D:\sqlbackups\forms\Forms_backup_2013_02_17_130013_8884015.trn' WITH FILE = 1, NORECOVERY, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10
GO

I get:

Msg 3154, Level 16, State 4, Line 1
The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'forms_scott' database.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE LOG is terminating abnormally.


How can I restore a log to a new db name?

That should work... are you sure the transaction log backup file actually has a backup of the original forms database?

Run a restore of the log with headeronly to verify.

RESTORE HEADERONLY FROM DISK = N'D:\sqlbackups\forms\Forms_backup_2013_02_17_130013_8884015.trn'

Did you restore over an existing database without using the overwrite flag?

No, I am trying to restore to a new database name while the existing one stays in place.

I ended up having him restore the database to another server with the original name and then I am restoring the logs. Of course, now he keeps putting it in recovery mode, so I cannot do logs. Hopefully, we'll get where I can restore some logs...

When he did the restore originally, the database had next to it something like "restoring..." instead of the "recovering...". Thus, I Don't think he did the right type of restore.
