Log Shipping Wizard : SQL Backup v5.0 Bug
Just wanted to report some trouble we had utilizing the SQL Backup v5 Log Shipping Wizard in the GUI.
Our source server and destination server are spread across a 1.5 mb private line WAN.
Following completion of the wizard steps, when the process would start - the GUI seizes up while copying the source backup to the destination server. We tried this two times; once using the source server as the log shipping share; once using the destination server as the log shipping share.
The GUI becomes unresponsibe. The backup does complete, however the remainder of the Log Shipping setup does not complete... creating log backup jobs, and creating log restore jobs.
I believe this is related to the size of our seed backup. The log shipping wizard did perform very well on a small seed; however on one of our larger databases, where the seed backup took ~4 hours to transfer over the network - the SQL Backup GUI completely froze up on the machine running the wizard.
If there is any additional information I can provide to help diagnose the issue I'd be more than happy to help.
