Hi All,

I have scheduled job for log shipping every 24 hours at midnight. First day it was running successfully but from 2nd day file is not restoring in the Secondary database.
can we schedule job every 24 hours or I need to schedule job every 15 minutes or 30 minutes.
Please clarify my doubt because my requirement that job should run everyday 12 Am at midnight.
Or is there any best solution which has alternate option of Log shipping.


Thanks,
Arooj

Can you tell us what the exact error message you're getting is?

When you say you're running it every 24 hours do you mean the backup job, the copy job and the restore job, or are you backing up much more frequently but only copying and restoring every 24 hours (which sounds risky to me)?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. i am getting error like " Could not find a log backup file that could be applied to secondary database'"

I have scheduled job for taking backup, copy, restore backup file at the same time.

It looks like before Log shipping restore the backup file it is deleting. Hence this is having issue. You can increase the backup retention time to 48 or 36 and problem will be solved.

Ok, that's helpful but we need to go through it step by step as there are so many variables.

Are you taking transaction log backups outside the log-shipping environment? If so, which folder are the log backups going to? The copy job on your secondary will only look in the log shipping folder specified in your log shipping configuration. (I've marked this path with an arrow in the screenshot I've attached.) If you take log backups that aren't stored in that folder, it will break log shipping because the copy and restore jobs won't have an unbroken chain of transaction log backups to work with.

Does that make sense? Can you check if that is happening first of all?

Why not just set it to run every minute for now, and then you can monitor it over the 30 minutes, rather than having to wait until later?

Ok, then something else may well be backing up your database and breaking your log chain (as far as log-shipping is concerned). I'd check that with your sysadmins.

It sounds like they're doing this overnight.
