Setting up Log Shipping under fire
I want to set up log shipping. I've got another server ready to go, but I'm not clear on just what the steps are when the db is in production like that.
Does the target server need to have RedGate Backup Pro installed?
When should I take the backup that goes on the second server to be the basis for the log shipping?
How do I insure that the shipping starts up smoothly if the database is in use?
Am I making this harder than I need to? :-)
