log ship wizard in 2K8R2 Std not showing compression option,but compression column is present in log_shipping_primary_databases. The option should still show in the wizard rite? Am i missing something?

Did any one else had this issue?

I have the same problem.
Did you already found a solution?

The system table’s structure remains same irrespective of server edition. The features availability is dependent on the edition (license / key). These are two independent facts.

Backup compression is available in SQL Server 2008 R2 Std.
Try the following against your primary database and check the value of the backup_compression column


exec sys.sp_help_log_shipping_primary_database @database = 'yourdb'




Use the following to enable compression

exec sys.sp_change_log_shipping_primary_database @database = 'yourdb',
@backup_compression = 1

Thanks for the info, but that doesn't explain why I don't have the backup compression option in the log shipping wizard of the Management Studio, however, I'm using the 2008 R2 SP1 SSMS and my server is SQL 2008 R2 SP1...

Problem is when setting up the log shipping on the primary.
No secondary is involved yet.

Ah right ok.

Try switching compression on using the command above see if it throws an error message, this may give a clearer indication.

Can you go to the Transaction log backup settings dialog and get a screenshot, are you saying the compression drop down list box is unavailable?

Same problem here, executing the commands did not give me any errors, but like Pieter said, there is no option available in the wizard (screenshot)

Its about SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard edition with SP1 (but the SP1 was merely to see if the option would pop up in the wizard and it did not ;-)
