Setting up log shipping with DBA tools

Have you ever tried to setup log shipping for one or more databases? You probably noticed the wide array of settings that have to be made for just one database. In most cases the settings only differentiate by the name of the database and some locations. Did you know you need about 40 clicks to setup log shipping for a single database? When it's finally setup, how do you check if the databases are in-sync? Have you setup log shipping as a warm stand-by? How do you recover the databases to get them online? We'll talk about the log shipping in general, applications for log shipping, third party solutions and possible competitors of log shipping. I'll show you how to use dba tools to setup a database for log shipping within minutes as well as how to test the status and how to recover to a functional database. If you’re interested in knowing more about log shipping and/or how to make your life easier, come to my session and I'll show you.
