    You could perform a full backup on the production server, and restore it on the standby server in norecovery/read-only mode. If you do this, you can skip the full backup and restore process.

    Is this what you are referring to?

    I know, Peter, and that's what i did -- perform a full backup on the production server, and restore it on the standby server in norecoverymode.

    But when i setup a log shipping using the wizard, it do it again, i did not find a way to bypass the two process.
