yes, i think (99%) didn't checked this option.


I'm fairly sure you did.

RESTORE DATABASE <database name> WITH RECOVERY



If that brings your database online then you did select the option in the restore dialog to leave the database in the restoring state to allow for further backups to be restored.

Question: If you run this command


RESTORE DATABASE databasename WITH RECOVERY



after a RESTORE WITH NORECOVERY as shown in GilaMonster's post, the database will change to a normal state and you're ready to go.

What happens if you run this command while a database is actually in the process of restoring? Is this a safe thing for the OP to try?

Nothing, because the running restore will have an exclusive lock on the database.

Is this a safe thing for the OP to try?


Wouldn't have suggested it if it wasn't.

I've witnessed restore operations take FOREVER due to extremely high VLF counts

Michelle Ufford has a good script for checking the count http://sqlfool.com/2010/06/check-vlf-counts/

Do a SP_WHO2 and see what SPID your restore is running then do a SP_WHO2 99 with 99 being the thread number... and keep hitting enter to see if any of the numbers are increasing....

or run this

Select r.command
, s.text
, r.start_time
, r.percent_complete
, cast(((datediff(second, r.start_time, getdate())) / 3600) As varchar) + ' hour(s), '
+ cast((datediff(second, r.start_time, getdate()) % 3600) / 60 As varchar) + 'min, '
+ cast((datediff(second, r.start_time, getdate()) % 60) As varchar) + ' sec' As running_time
, cast((r.estimated_completion_time / 3600000) As varchar) + ' hour(s), '
+ cast((r.estimated_completion_time % 3600000) / 60000 As varchar) + 'min, '
+ cast((r.estimated_completion_time % 60000) / 1000 As varchar) + ' sec' As est_time_to_go
, dateadd(second, r.estimated_completion_time / 1000, getdate()) As est_completion_time
From sys.dm_exec_requests r
Cross Apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(r.sql_handle) s
Where r.command Like 'DBCC%'
Or r.command In ('RESTORE DATABASE', 'BACKUP DATABASE', 'RESTORE LOG', 'BACKUP LOG');
