Hello Jason,

thanks for replying i forget username and password i got my username and password, now i will this forum frequntly,

i have one issue

i have configured log shipping with 15 min time period ,for testing i have disblae the log shipping and open the dr database after when i am putting the existing database in restore mode then enabling the log shipping i am getting below error in restore job

Error: This backup set cannot be applied because it is on a recovery path that is inconsistent with the database. The recovery path is the sequence of data and log backups that have brought the database to a particular recovery point. Find a compatible backup to restore, or restore the rest of the database to match a recovery point within this backup set, which will restore the database to a different point in time. For more information about recovery paths, see SQL Server Books Online.

but i am able to put the database in restore mode getting after trying to restore transaction log manually or through log shipping getting the above error . i can eanble log shipping again but i have to copy database from primary which i dont want to copy full database again and again.
