I restore fullbackup and diffrential backup with standby mode to sqlserver
I want change the standby mode to recovery mode
but it give me this message...


Server: Msg 3013
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.
Server: Msg 3136
Cannot apply the backup on device 'SQLBACKUP_DF0467BB-91AB-4D0A-B4EA-8C0F440C57A6' to database 'studentdb'.

SQL error code: 3136


script
master..sqlbackup N'-SQL "RESTORE DATABASE [studentdb] FROM DISK = ''D:\student_differentialbackup.sqb'' WITH RECOVERY


any idea? why wrong? Is that mean i can't change the standby mode to recovery mode? or i need to backup another transaction and restore with recovery mode with new backup transaction?

    Could you pls run the RESTORE HEADERONLY command e.g.

    master..sqlbackup '-sql "RESTORE HEADERONLY FROM DISK = [...]" '

    and post the values for the DifferentialBaseLSN column for the full and differential backups? Thanks.

    I guess that this is the backup that you are having problems applying the differential restore with. What are the Differential base LSN values for the full backup and the differential backup that you applied earlier? They need to be the same values if you want to apply this differential backup.

    You could also check if there was a full backup made between the full backup that you restored and the differential backup that you are trying to restore e.g.

    SELECT TOP 50 b.type, b.backup_finish_date, a.physical_device_name, * FROM msdb..backupmediafamily a
    INNER JOIN msdb..backupset b ON a.media_set_id = b.media_set_id
    WHERE b.database_name = 'studentdb'
    ORDER BY b.media_set_id DESC

    If there was, that would explain why you are unable to restore the differential backup.
