I have used Sql Backup's logshipping feature to transfer data from the sql server in our office to a DR Server at remote location. The database at remote site is currently in Read-only mode. I would like to test if the remote sql server database can be made operational.

I tried using:


but it did not work. It gave the following error message.

"Server: Msg 3101, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use.
Server: Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.
No users are currently logged onto the remote sql server. not sure why its giving this particular error. Incase if I have to kill some processes prior to issuing the "restore database" command, please let me know some sql code about that as well.

Please advise.

Thanking you in advance.
