In one of my project I was working on SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008 upgradation. It’s a side by side upgrade so I need to restore the database from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008, in which some of the databases are readonly. I know I will be able to restore readonly database however in this case when I tried to restore the database in SQL Server 2008 I got the error below
I faced an issue during restoration of very large db in our development database server. Issue is restoration takes very long time even though we had latest hardware and recent version of SQL Server (it’s SQL 2008 Ent. Ed). So to troubleshoot it I have used the trace flag 3004 which print all internal things happen during backup and restoration operation.
