SQL Server 2005 Log Shipping and subsequent FULL backups that are needed

Afternoon,   I have a few Log Shipped DBs that are working great.   Currently they are set to fire off every 15 minutes 24/7.   My question is this ... I need to get FULL backups of the source DBs in order to restore them on certain Dev boxes.   If I were to execute the full backup on one of these Log Shipped DBs ... how would it affect the log shipping process?   Is there a special method to accomplish this?   As a side note, what would be some concerns/issues if in being able to create the FULL backups and not interupt log shipping, I were to create the backup using a 3rd party tool like Quest LiteSpeed?   I sure wish we were on Enterprise, then I could create a mirror and then snapshot off it to create my backups BUT ... that is not the case as we stand today.   Thanks

Cannot Restore Backup from Sharepoint Server 2007 to Sharepoint Server 2010 Trial Version

After installing the trial version of Sharepointn 2010 I wanted to restore my Sharepoint 2007 sites to it but received the following error:  "The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space." I went on to create a new content database in sharepoint 2010 but it still did not work. The old database i.e the one used by the sharepoint 2007 server is SQL 2005. During the installation of the sharepoint 2010 version I selected SQl Server Express for the database. Is there any specifics for migrating from MOSS 2007 to sharepoint 2010? Thanks for helping

Do I need free space when doing full database restore in SQL Server 2005?


I have a drive 'F' with 40G free space. I try to restore a database whose data + log file size is 60G.

The restore fails. Is it because a full restore needs  free disk space of 60G in this case?

Moving full-text catalog from one server to another using backup / restore


Dear Sirs,
I'm having a problem with Full-Text Catalog in SQL SERVER 2005.
The problem is: I did a backup of a database that has a full-text catalog from one server and restored on another server.
The restore worked perfectly, but the catalog is down because it is pointing to the physical path from the source server.
To recover this full-text catalog I tried the commands below:

use master

sp_detach_db 'SiteEng2004'

(FILENAME = 'D:\SQL SERVER\DADOS\SiteEng2004\SiteEng2004_Data.MDF'),
(FILENAME = 'E:\SQL SERVER\LOGS\SiteEng2004\SiteEng2004_Log.LDF'),

Unfortunately it did not work and the following error message occurs :

Msg 5120, Level 16, State 101, Line 2
Unable to open the physical file "D:\SQL SERVER\DADOS\SiteEng2004". Operating system error 5: "5(error not found)".

Could anyone help me on what I should do to restore this full-text catalog on the destination server ?
Thanks in advance.

Enable Full Text Index in VWD 2008 / SQL Server Express 2008


 Hi, I am using VWD 2008 Express and SQL Server 2008 Express. I want to enable full text index in some of my table. How do I do that? I only have  SQL Server Management Studio Express 2008. As far as I know, I cannot use SQL Server Management Studio Express 2008 to update the full text catalog according to : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms365247.aspx

My tables are also not enable Full Text Search by default. 


 Any help would be very much appreciated!

 Edit 1: Someone had a similar problem to mine on this link: http://forums.asp.net/t/1169961.aspx
I installed the Sql Server 2008 Express with Advance Services and made sure that Full Text functionality is installed. However I don't get a full text menu in SQL Server Management Studio. 

 Edit 2: I uninstall and reinstall SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services but still couldn't be able to enable full text index.

 Edit 3: After see this, I guess I have to do it manually then:  http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?siteid=1&PostID=3912985
