Automated DPM SQL restore from one database to a reporting database???

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

Goal:  Nightly DPM 2010 restore from clustered SQL Production database to overwrite Production Reporting Database on same server.

I know this cannot be done via DPM 2010 GUI and needs to be approached via DPM's Powershell Cmdlets.  I'm just getting stuck in the forest of cmdlet syntax.  I'm not worried about how to schedule that (I'll just use task scheduler), I just need to figure out how to finish this script.

Here is where I am at so far (I know I have a bit to go still).  Any help would be apprecaited:

$pg = Get-ProtectionGroup -DPMServername <SERVER NAME> #Set dpm server

$ds = Get-Datasource - ProtectionGroup $pg[x]  # Get SQL Data protection group (x=protection group position in array)

$rp = Get-RecoveryPoint -Datasource $ds[x]  # Get SQL Database to restore from (x=database position in array)

$rp[-1] # Returns lastest recovery point for SQL Database to be restored from

so now that I have the recovery point for the source Database, how do I go about overwriting a different destination database on the same server and instance?  I think i have to use the following Cmdlets, but I need to nail down the syntax and get this completed asap (reminder: clustered instance of sql):

SQL2008 - Cannot Restore a new database from a full backup of a different one, database in use

I am trying to restore a brand new database from a copy of another one and am encountering an error message stating: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The file <Backup source database file location> cannot be overwritten.  It is being used by database <Backup Source Database>. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo) I am running the Restore procedure with the REPLACE option and am wondering why it is stating that the source database is the database in use when I am trying to restore and overwrite a completely different database. This issue happens when running the replace both in C# using SMO and when manually restoring with SqlServer Management Studio Interesting note is, the original source database is created / deployed using a database project within VisualStudios 2010 and then deployed to SqlServer through VisualStudios. Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks in advance for any help!

Single-page restore/recover in an online database

I am working with SQL Server 2008 64-bit (10.0.2531) on Windows Server Datacenter 2008 SP2 (64-bit). The problems I am having almost certainly stem from my lack of understanding of how SQL Server's transaction log is handled during recoveries. I am using this document as a rough guide. Here' what I am doing: 1. I intentionally corrupt a single data page in a normal table, so that I can practice single-page recovery. 2. I attempt to read the corrupt block in SQL. As expected I receive an error. 1> select top 10 firstname from ds2.dbo.customers 2> go Msg 824, Level 24, State 2, Server IP-0AF647E0, Line 1 SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid (expected 4:896; actual 3:0). It occurred during a read of page (4:896) in database ID 5 at offset 0x00000000700000 in file 'C:\sql\dbfiles\cust1.ndf'. Additional messages in the SQL Server error log or system event log may provide more detail. 3. I take a log tail backup before I do anything to try to fix the corruption: 1> backup log ds2 to disk = 'c:\sqlbackup\ds2.bak' with norecovery 2> go Processed 5 pages for database 'ds2', file 'ds_log' on file 1. BACKUP LOG successfully processed 5 pages in 0.041 seconds (0.857 MB/sec). 4. I  restore the corrupt page from backup: 1> restore database ds2 page='4:896' 2> from disk='c:\sqlbackup\ds2.bak' 3> with norecovery 4&

SharePoint Version 2.0 (WSS 2.0 SP3) Content Database restore to new farm

Is it possible to use an SQL backup from a sharepoint Version 2 SP3 database to restore the content on a new server farm and attach to a new web applicaiton. NOTE: This is WSS 2.0. In WSS 3.0 this is a very simple task, but it is not the same in WSS 2.0 (the add content database option CANNOT be used to attach to an existing content database like it does in WSS 3.0). The options I have found appear to say you need the configuration database from the old server then it can be done. I am migrating from an outsourced deployment, so I do not have access to that. Plan B is to do a sharepoint STSADM backup. THis seems to be a more likey way to do it.

Restore 2005 database on 2008 R2 Trial

I've downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Trial and installed it on Windows Server 2008 trial running under Virtual PC on XP. I've made backups of databases on my SQL Server 2005 and tried to restore them using a) the wizard - results in a messagebox saying "Specified cast is not valid" and no backup sets are available in the Restore Database window. b) using T-SQL - results in Msg 3183, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 RESTORE detected an error on page (0:0) in database "dp" as read from the backup set. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. Using the wizard and RESTORE on 2005 for the same database backup works fine. c) Detach on 2005 and Attach on 2008 results in: SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid... Detach and Attach worked fine on 2005 and DBCC CHECKDB revealed no errors. Thanks for any info...

"The Database Engine instance you selected is not valid for this edition of Reporting Services" erro

Hi there, I have developed some reports using Visual Studio and everything worked fine in the office. Now I'm trying to deploy them on my customer PCs but this process keeps failing. These reports can be built and even previewed within Visual Studio but they cannot be deployed. Here is the error message I get: ----------------------------------------- The feature: "The Database Engine instance you selected is not valid for this edition of Reporting Services. The Database Engine does not meet edition requirements for report data sources or the report server database." is not supported in this edition of reporting services. ---------------------------------------- The versions of the software on my customer machines are: SQL Server Enterprise 9.0.3282 SQL Server 2005 Management Studio 9.00.4035 SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Designers 9.00.4035.00 Visual Studio 2005 8.0.50727.42 I believe that changing the edition of the Reporting Services from Designers to Enterprise should fix the deployment error but I did not find a way or setup files to do so. Many thanks in advance for your help!

SQL Server database restore with multiple logicalfiles by using t-sql

Hi,   I have set of database backups created in the production sql server 2005. I need restore these backups into another sql server 2005 by using t-sql script(stored procedure). Each database will have different number of logical files in it. The physical location of the target server may be different for these logical files. I know that i should use WITH MOVE 'YourMDFLogicalName' TO 'D:DataYourMDFFile.mdf' clause. Now i want to know how would i put it in a t-script stored procedure such a way that it automatically identifies all the logical files and create a physical file on the target server. User will supply source of bakup file and target folder for mdf,ldf, etc files. Do i need to populate the sql query as string by looping through all the logical files? If so how would i execute the populated sql query as string ?  Mr Genius

Access from Reporting Service database in Sqlserver2005 to Sqlserver2008 R2 database

We are going to upgrade our databases from SQLServer 2005 to SQLServer 2008 R2. Today the databases including Reporting Services are running in SQLServer 2005 9.0.4211 and in a cluster environment. We are planning not to upgrade the Reporting Service database to Sqlserver 2008 R2. The Sqlserver2005 and Sqlserver2008 R2 will be run side-by-side.   My question is: Is it possible to access a database running in Sqlserver 2008 R2 from a Reporting service database that is running in Sqlserver 2005 (9.0.4211)?  

Reporting Services doesn't connect to database automatically

Hello. I use Windows 2003 R2 x64 and SQL Server 2005 x64.  The problem is: if the Reporting Services Service were doesn't start automatically, despite the set up parameter "Restart Automatically" every 1 minute in the service Recovery property. So every minute after Service stopped i recieve an error in Event Viewer: Report Server (MSSQLSERVER) cannot connect to the report server database However, after starting it manually from Computer Management->Services or Reporting Services Configuration Tool it starts normally without any error.

Error when running an SQL script to restore a database on SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

Hi, At work, I use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. At home, I also use SQL Server 2008 Express running on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. Whenever I do work on the database at work, I usually restore the database at home (or vice versa) I have been using the following SQL scripts to back up the database and to restore the same database (at work or at home). BackupRealEstate.sql USE Master BACKUP DATABASE [RealEstate] TO DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, INIT, NAME = N'RealEstate-Full Database Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10 GO RestoreRealEstate.sql USE Master RESTORE DATABASE [RealEstate] FROM DISK = N'F:\My Documents\My Database\RealEstate.bak' WITH  FILE = 1, NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10 GO Everything worked fine until I replaced my 8yo home computer with a newer and faster one. My new home computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium and I use the latest SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. When I tried to run the above restore SQL script, I got the following error message: Msg 3101, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. There was no other application/process using this database. Can someone please help me? Regards,
