[ @restore\_delay = ] 'restore_delay'
The amount of time, in minutes, that the secondary server waits before restoring a given backup file. restore_delay is int and cannot be NULL. The default value is 0.
[ @restore\_all = ] 'restore_all'
If set to 1, the secondary server restores all available transaction log backups when the restore job runs. Otherwise, it stops after one file has been restored. restore_all is bit and cannot be NULL.
[ @restore\_mode = ] 'restore_mode'
The restore mode for the secondary database.
0 = restore log with NORECOVERY.
1 = restore log with STANDBY.
restore is bit and cannot be NULL.
[ @disconnect\_users = ] 'disconnect_users'
If set to 1, users is disconnected from the secondary database when a restore operation is performed. Default = 0. disconnect_users is bit and cannot be NULL.
[ @block\_size = ] 'block_size'
The size, in bytes, that is used as the block size for the backup device. block_size is int with a default value of -1.
[ @buffer\_count = ] 'buffer_count'
The total number of buffers used by the backup or restore operation. buffer_count is int with a default value of -1.
[ @max\_transfer\_size = ] 'max_transfer_size'
The size, in bytes, of the maximum input or output request which is issued by SQL Server to the backup device. max_transfersize is int and can be NULL.
[ @restore\_threshold = ] 'restore_threshold'
The number of minutes allowed to elapse between restore operations before an alert is generated. restore_threshold is int and cannot be NULL.
[ @threshold\_alert = ] 'threshold_alert'
Is the alert to be raised when the backup threshold is exceeded. threshold_alert is int, with a default of 14420.
[ @threshold\_alert\_enabled = ] 'threshold_alert_enabled'
Specifies whether an alert will be raised when backup_threshold is exceeded. 1 = enabled; 0 = disabled. threshold_alert_enabled is bit and cannot be NULL.
[ @history\_retention\_period = ] 'history_retention_period'
Is the length of time in minutes in which the history will be retained. history_retention_period is int. A value of 1440 will be used if none is specified.
Return Code Values
0 (success) or 1 (failure)
sp_change_log_shipping_secondary_database must be run from the master database on the secondary server. This stored procedure does the following:
Changes the settings in the log_shipping_secondary_database records as necessary.
Changes the local monitor record in log_shipping_monitor_secondary on the secondary server using supplied arguments, if necessary.
Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role can run this procedure.
This example illustrates using sp_change_log_shipping_secondary_database to update secondary database parameters for the database LogShipAdventureWorks.
EXEC master.dbo.sp_change_log_shipping_secondary_database @secondary_database = 'LogShipAdventureWorks' , @restore_delay = 0 , @restore_all = 1 , @restore_mode = 0 , @disconnect_users = 0 , @threshold_alert = 14420 , @threshold_alert_enabled = 1 , @history_retention_period = 14420
