I'm trying to set up an automated restore of a weekly full followed by a nightly differential. The full restore WITH NORECOVER restores correctly, however the differential (immediately following) fails with the following error:

SQL Backup log file 6.4.0.56

-SQL "RESTORE DATABASE [ATMReportsLive] FROM DISK = 'I:\SQLBackupStore\Thursday\DIFF_(local)_ATMReportsLive_20110428_*.sqb' WITH DISCONNECT_EXISTING, STANDBY = 'I:\LogShippingUndo\ATMReportsLive_Undo.DAT' "

    Thank you for your post and sorry that you have encountered a problem.

    If using the Restore Wizard, can you please retry the restore process and ensure that the option "Kill any existing connections to the database" is not selected or unchecked.

    If scripting please retry the restore process and remove the DISCONNECT_EXISTING keyword from the script.

    Please reply to let us know if the restore is successful or not?

    Many Thanks

    Removing the DISCONNECT_EXISTING from the WITH clause of the SQL argument to the RESTORE command fixed the issue. I didn't realize that the disconnect_existing performed ALTER statements as part of it's function.

    Thanks!
