Restore database error

sql2008r2

#1

Hi I want to restore my db into my newdb, but it shows an error telling ;

Msg 3154, Level 16, State 4, Line 1
The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'bisbu' database.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

I try to find from another solution like run a script as below

restore database bisbu
from disk='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'
with replace

it tells

RESTORE DATABASE bisd
FROM DISK = 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'
WITH RECOVERY;

or another script ;

RESTORE DATABASE bisd
FROM DISK='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'
WITH MOVE 'LogicalName of the SourceDatafile' TO 'D:\database\bisd.mdf',
MOVE 'Logicalname of sourcelogfile' TO'D:\database\bisd_log.ldf'

it still tells ;

Msg 3154, Level 16, State 4, Line 1
The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'bisd' database.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

please help

thanks a lot...

What does this give you?

RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK ='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’

you should get something like this

LogicalName        PhysicalName                     Type FileGroupName Size MaxSize
------------------ -------------------------------- ---- ------------- ---- -------
MyOldDatabase_data D:\MSSQL\DATA\MyDatabaseName.mdf D    PRIMARY       1234 567890
MyOldDatabase_log  D:\MSSQL\DATA\MyDatabaseName.ldf L    NULL          1234 567890

Based on YOUR results globally change these values (in all the scripts below) :

-- Location of BACKUP FILES which you want to restore
--	x:\Mypath\		                    Path to your backup files
--	x:\Mypath\MyFullBackupfile.BAK		Path/Filename of the FULL BACKUP file
--	x:\Mypath\MyDifferentialBackupfile.BAK	Path/Filename of the DIFFERENTIAL BACKUP file (optional)

-- TARGET Location for the Database (Data and Log - which may be separate drives etc)
--	x:\MySQLDataPath\MyNewDatabaseName.mdf	
--	x:\MySQLLogPath\MyNewDatabaseName.ldf
--	
-- ORIGINAL logical names
--	MyOldDatabase_data
--	MyOldDatabase_log

-- also change these to what would be SENSIBLE names for the NEW logical objects:

--	MyNewDatabase_data
--	MyNewDatabase_log
--
--	MyNewDatabaseName

-- Restore script

USE master -- Must not be "sitting" in the database being restored!
GO

-- If database is being overwritten force all users off:
ALTER DATABASE MyNewDatabaseName SET OFFLINE WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
GO

RESTORE DATABASE MyNewDatabaseName
	FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyFullBackupfile.BAK'
	WITH
		REPLACE,	-- Overwrite DB - if one exists
		NORECOVERY,
		STATS = 10,	-- Show progress (every 10%)
	MOVE 'MyOldDatabase_data' TO 'x:\MySQLDataPath\MyNewDatabaseName.mdf', 
	MOVE 'MyOldDatabase_log' TO 'x:\MySQLLogPath\MyNewDatabaseName.ldf'
GO

-- If you have a Differential backup to restore do this:

RESTORE DATABASE MyNewDatabaseName
	FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyDifferentialBackupfile.BAK'
	WITH
		NORECOVERY

-- If you have any Transaction Backup files to restore repeat this for each one in turn:

-- Copy & Paste this multiple times if you have many TLog files to restore
RESTORE LOG MyNewDatabaseName FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyTransactionBackupfile0001.BAK' WITH NORECOVERY, STATS = 10
RESTORE LOG MyNewDatabaseName FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyTransactionBackupfile0002.BAK' WITH NORECOVERY, STATS = 10
...

-- Set the database ready for use (after all backups have been restored)

RESTORE DATABASE MyNewDatabaseName WITH RECOVERY
GO

-- Rename logical names:
ALTER DATABASE MyNewDatabaseName MODIFY FILE (NAME = 'MyOldDatabase_data', NEWNAME = 'MyNewDatabase_data')
GO
ALTER DATABASE MyNewDatabaseName MODIFY FILE (NAME = 'MyOldDatabase_log', NEWNAME = 'MyNewDatabase_log')
GO

#3

there're so many script..which on that i can use?

thx


#4

I've tried the script one by one but the result still sending message as below

Msg 3154, Level 16, State 4, Line 1
The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'bisd' database.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

thx


#5

All of them, as marked the Differential and Log restores are optional

As previously asked:


#6

Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’

'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’

'.


#7

I copied that from your original posting but didn't notice, until now, that you have the wrong sort of single-quote on the end.

i.e. it should be this:

RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK ='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'

#8

It shows the logical name physicalname and what next should i do?

Thx


#9

Post the results here.

The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing ‘bisd’ database

suggests there is something in the backup file other than / in addition to the database that you want to restore.


#10
  1. Add REPLACE to the restore command
  2. Make sure those new file names are not already in use by any db or other process:

RESTORE DATABASE bisd
FROM DISK='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'
WITH REPLACE, MOVE ‘LogicalName of the SourceDatafile’ TO ‘D:\database\bisd.mdf’,
MOVE ‘Logicalname of sourcelogfile’ TO’D:\database\bisd_log.ldf’


#11

That's in the script that I proposed ... so I was assuming that could not be the problem.

Could you get that error message if you have multiple database backups in a single file? (i.e. also need a NAME parameter to RESTORE command)?

if not then it can only be REPLACE, as you describe.


#12

it tells errors

Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’
WITH REPLACE, MOVE ‘bis’ TO ‘D:\database\bisd.mdf’,
MOVE ‘bis_log’ TO’D:\database\bisd_log.ldf’

'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Incorrect syntax near 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’
WITH REPLACE, MOVE ‘bis’ TO ‘D:\database\bisd.mdf’,
MOVE ‘bis_log’ TO’D:\database\bisd'.


#13

You still haven't posted the results from that


#14

I've told that before
" It shows the logical name physicalname and what next should i do?"

It Shows this
Logicalname Physicalname type Filegroupname Size
BIS D:\Database\BIS.mdf D PRIMARY 6925844480
BIS_log D:\Database\BIS_log.ldf L NULL 13959168

thx


#15

Sorry, I copied and pasted too quickly:

RESTORE DATABASE bisd
FROM DISK='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’
WITH REPLACE,
MOVE [BIS] TO ‘D:\database\bisd.mdf’,
MOVE [BIS_log] TO’D:\database\bisd_log.ldf’


#16

No you didn't, you gave me an explanation of the output, not the data.

I've substituted your values into the script I gave you before

USE master -- Must not be "sitting" in the database being restored!
GO

-- If database is being overwritten force all users off:
-- *** IGNORE ERROR IN THIS COMMAND IF THE DATABASE "bisd" DOES NOT ALREADY EXIST ***
ALTER DATABASE bisd SET OFFLINE WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
GO

RESTORE DATABASE bisd
	FROM DISK = 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'
	WITH
		REPLACE,	-- Overwrite DB - if one exists
		NORECOVERY,
		STATS = 10,	-- Show progress (every 10%)
	MOVE 'BIS' TO 'D:\database\bisd.mdf', 
	MOVE 'BIS_log' TO 'D:\database\bisd_log.ldf'
GO

/** N/A
-- If you have a Differential backup to restore do this:
RESTORE DATABASE bisd
	FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyDifferentialBackupfile.BAK'
	WITH
		NORECOVERY
N/A **/

/**N/A
-- If you have any Transaction Backup files to restore repeat this for each one in turn:

-- Copy & Paste this multiple times if you have many TLog files to restore
RESTORE LOG bisd FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyTransactionBackupfile0001.BAK' WITH NORECOVERY, STATS = 10
RESTORE LOG bisd FROM DISK = 'x:\Mypath\MyTransactionBackupfile0002.BAK' WITH NORECOVERY, STATS = 10
...
-- Set the database ready for use (after all backups have been restored)
N/A**/

RESTORE DATABASE bisd WITH RECOVERY
GO

-- Rename logical names:
ALTER DATABASE bisd MODIFY FILE (NAME = 'BIS', NEWNAME = 'bisd_data')
GO
ALTER DATABASE bisd MODIFY FILE (NAME = 'BIS_log', NEWNAME = 'bisd_log')
GO

Its basically the same as Scots's script, so his script may have (already) worked for you.

Personally I would still want to change the Logical Name from what the original backup used to something that matches the [changed] name of the new database

There are a couple of other things in my script that may prevent some errors - e.g. if the database already exists, and if it has open connections.

But its basically the same as Scott's script.


#17

Dear Scott,
It still show errors..
Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’
WITH REPLACE,
MOVE [BIS] TO ‘D:\database\bisd.mdf’,
MOVE [BIS_log] TO’D:\database\bisd_log.ldf’
'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Incorrect syntax near 'D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’
WITH REPLACE,
MOVE [BIS] TO ‘D:\database\bisd.mdf’,
MOVE [BIS_log] TO’D:\database\bis'.

Did I put wrong command?

thx


#18

Dear Kristen,
It is show errors message

Msg 3154, Level 16, State 4, Line 2

the db become offline ..and returning offline again after the script execute..

thx


#19

That means that the "bisd" database, which you are trying to restore, already existed.

I presume that because you are trying to restore OVER that datahase that you do not have a problem with it (now) being offline.

But if you need to put the original back ONLINE you can use this command:

ALTER DATABASE bisd SET ONLINE WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE
GO

I have some further ideas about changes you should try, but I will test those before replying.

Are you 100% certain that the results you posted for

RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK =‘D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak’

was exactly what was displayed AND that you did not leave anything out? No additional lines displayed?


#20

Please post the results from this:

RESTORE HEADERONLY FROM DISK ='D:\backupdb\bis_backup_201711100007.bak'

In particular what is the value for BackupType?
