All so much easier if you just spend an hour or 2 writing your own logshipping routines.

Agreed - but this is still easy to add a new file after you have been running for a while when new files are added without starting over from a full restore.

I wrote my own log shipping routines right down to duplicating the monitor report. I thought it was slick and it all worked very well but all I did was reinvent the wheel.

Mimicking the primary volumes on the secondary isn't always possible. Sometimes you have to work with what you are given. I log ship about 500 primary databases from 40 or so remote servers to a single local secondary server that I run tape backups off of. That secondary server has only one enormous data drive - E:. Most of the primary servers are default instances with data on the D: drive, and on top of that many of them have the same database and file names.

I ended up doing some custom scripting to implement this but I'm using the shrink wrapped log shipping and monitor routines. I just automated the creation of the 500+ log shipping configurations.
