Database Logshipping

Hi, I have already setup Database Log Shipping for one of my server. Server A to Server B (Server B is in Simple Recovery Mode). But I want to Log Ship again to CoLocation Site. Is that okay to setup again from Server A to Server C? Do you think it will mess up the LSN?? **I can't Log Ship from Server B to Server C because DB is in Simple Recover Mode. Thanks

You can use the log files to maintain as many standby databases/servers as you need - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb895393.aspx

Yes you can log ship from one source server to multiple target servers. From [MSDN/BOL][1] > Log shipping allows you to automatically send transaction log backups from a primary database on a primary server instance to **one or more** secondary databases on separate secondary server instances.

Hi Kev and John... I setup Server A to Server C last 2 hours ago and now I am getting error on Server C and also error on Server B as well. Error Message was saying 'It can't find earlier LSN file...' I am using Red Gate Log Shiping.

Have you followed the help that comes with SQLBackup? Have you got a support contract with RedGate? If so then I would suggest that you contact them as they have a brilliant support desk who will work with you on the problem

Sorted. They suggested me to Log ship from Server A to B Only, then added extra script to restore the Log for Server C same as Server B. Now works. Thanks
