The DatabaseName element identifies the database into which the Restore command restores a backup file. If this element is not specified or contains an empty string, the name of the database contained in the backup file is used.

If the database already exists on the target instance, an error occurs unless the AllowOverwrite element for the parent Restore command is set to True.
