SQL Virtual Restore: Rapidly mount live, fully functional databases direct from backups

Feature Request: Queued Restores

Postby kevine323 » Fri Feb 03, 2012 10:05 pm

I like to request the ability to queue up a set of database backup's to be restored, have DBCC CheckDB ran, and then drop the database. All of the CheckDB messages should be sent to a log file to be reviewed after the entire operation is complete.

Hi Kevin,

It sounds like you could do what you're after by scripting restores from the command line using HyperUtil - we've got a support article up here about it:

Let me know if that helps at all.

Hi Kevin,

with our upcoming release of SQL Backup Pro 7 you can schedule restores, run DBCC CHECKDB and drop the database following verification.

You can find the EAP builds here:

There isn't any Virtual Restore integration for v7 but may be included in a future release.

You can schedule them but you have to do these one at a time, how about a wildcard in the database name and let it do the restores one at a time.
