In log shipping,do you needto license thedestination server?

Postby dap » Wed Mar 19, 2014 8:20 am

I would like to set up a scheduled log shipping for a certain database, however the destination server is not registered/license. I just need the destination database be updated with newly taken TRN log, so it is in stand-by or read-only state.

Do I need to have a license for the destination server where the database is read-only? I already have a method for this though, done by taking backup of the source database then a script that will copy it to the destination server and a job to auto restore it on schedule. But I also want to utilize log shipping of SQL backup pro. Can't I just do it?

Thanks!

To restore any SQL Backup backup you must decompress and/or decrypt them. This requires the SQL Backup Server Components to work, and in turn the components need to be activated.

Unfortunately this cannot be worked around on a scheduled job.
