Hi,

All my restores are failing with the same problem. Below is one of the log files. Can somebody tell me where the problem might be? Thanks

SQL Backup log file 6.4.0.56

-SQL "RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK='E:\Production Databases\FULL_(local)_BugTracker_20100707_013009.sqb' WITH PASSWORD='XXXXXXXXXX' "

    This is the cause of the problem. For some reason, SQL Backup has issued a CREATE DATABASE command, even though you have only requested to restore the file list from the backup file.

    Could you please start Profiler, filter on the application name 'SQBCoreService.exe', and see what exactly is SQL Backup trying to do when it processes the RESTORE FILELISTONLY command?

    Thanks.

    I also had this exact issue while trying to restore a full backup on SQL Server 2008 R2. I ran SQL Profiler and got the following:
    exec master..sqlbackup N'-SQL "RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK=''C:\Temp\FULL_(local)_fogbugz_20110221_003344.sqb''"'
    

    This is where the process died. I tried running this in Enterprise Manager on the production machine and got the same error:
    Msg 1, Level 15, State 1, Line 0
    Reading filelist of "C:\Temp\FULL_(local)_fogbugz_20110221_003344.sqb"

    Failed to obtain memory status: SQL error 229: The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object 'sqbmemory', database 'master', schema 'dbo'.
    
    SQL Backup exit code: 1010
    SQL error code: 262
    

    This turned out being a permissions bug. I had set up the server to run as NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE but, for some reason, that login was not added to the sysadmin server role. To fix it, I used Enterprise Manager to browse to my server > Security > Server Roles > sysadmin and added NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE as a role member. That fixed it.
