Error 570: File is not a SQL Backup file.

Hi,

I have a job to restore 10 production database on Test server.

Right now the problem that I am facing is : Sometimes 7 are successful restore and 3 fails with the following error : Error 570: File is not a SQL Backup file. and database goes into recovering state and then stays there. ( non funtional )

Then I have to manually delete the databases and then clean the files and then start the restore again. with my second attmept, all are restored successfully with same backup files .

Can anyone help to alleviate this issue.

I am using SQL Backup version : 6.2.0.134


Thanks

    As you are using 6.2 what does the Red gate log show? From the GUI right click on Show Log on the failed job.

    On the failed restored, Red gate log says :

    SQL Backup log file 6.2.0.134.

    Sometimes , it also records below errors : (But later on , when I use same backup file., it works good ).

    Were these 3 files copied successfully for sure?

    I'd use SQBConverter.exe to convert them back to .BAK file to make sure

    Otherwise to be safe, re-copy those files


    We had something like this last week where FTP didn't copy the .sqb files successfully

    Can anyone from Red-gate support look into this issue . Its very important for our businees that we dont have these errors.

    Thanks

    This might be a thread error. We do something similar copying backup files to another server to restore them to run DBCC CHECKDB on the restored database.

    We got the occasional thread error and had to restrict how many backups we try to restore at any one time.

    You might want to adjust the MAXTRANSFERSIZE parameter.
