    Restoring a database from a different server

    Hi!
    I attempted to backup a database on server x and restore it on a database on server y. The details are as follows.

    Server X
    Database name : dbx
    Size :263.88MB (Unrestricted filegrowth option set)
    Logical files : dbx_data, dbx_log
    Physical files : e:mssql7datadbx_data.mdf, f:databaselogsdbx_log.ldf

    Server Y
    Database name : dby
    Size :1MB (Unrestricted filegrowth option set)
    Logical files : dby_data, dby_log
    Physical files : d:mssql7datadby_data.mdf, d:mssql7datadby_log.ldf


    I created a full database backup of dbx on server x at the location, f:ackupsdbx_083099_10.30AM. The size of the file is 272MB. I zipped the file. Copied the file, dbx_083099_10.30AM.xip over to d:ackups of server y. I unzipped the file at server y to the location, d:ackupsdbx_083099_10.30AMdbx_083099_10.30AM.

    I now tried to restore this backup on server y using the statement,
    restore database dby from disk = 'd:ackupsdbx_083099_10.30AMdbx_083099_10.3 0AM
    with replace,
    move 'dbx_data' to 'd:mssql7datadby_data.mdf',
    move 'dbx_log' to 'd:mssql7datadby_log.ldf'


    I get the following errors :

    Server: Msg 3257, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
    There is insufficient free space on disk volume 'd:' to create the database. The database requires 3219128320 additional free bytes, while only 2047102976 bytes are available.
    Server: Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
    Backup or restore operation terminating abnormally.

    Error log shows,
    1999-08-30 10:28:54.68 kernel BackupDiskFile::OpenMedia: Backup device 'd:ackupdbx_083099_10.30AMdbx_083099_10.30AM& #39; failed to open. Operating system error = 1326(Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.).

    (or)

    Cannot open backup device, 'd:ackupdbx_083099_10.30AMdbx_083099_10.30AM& #39;. Device error or device offline. See SQL Server error log for more info.
    Backup or restore operation terminated abnormally.

    How can I solve this problem ?

    Restoring a database from a different server (reply)

    There is a much easier way to restore a database from one server to the other. What you need to do is first, make sure there is enough space on your hard drive that you are restoring to. Second, using the xp_cmdshell in Query Analyzer (or at the DOS command prompt), mape your drive such as:

    EXEC xp_cmdshell 'net use x: \servernamed$ admin /usersisql'

    Then at the server you want to restore to, in your SQL statement or in the visual restore box, use 'x' as the drive letter, then the actual path of where the backup file or device is. Then restore!! It works great. I use it every night to restore to our standby server.

    Any questions, e-mail me.
