If you include the secondary_database parameter, the result set will contain information about that secondary database; if you include the secondary_id parameter, the result set will contain information about all secondary databases associated with that secondary ID.
sp_help_log_shipping_secondary_database must be run from the master database on the secondary server.
Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role can run this procedure.
