Remove a Secondary Database from a Log Shipping Configuration (SQL Server)

[!INCLUDE SQL Server] This topic describes how to remove a log shipping secondary database in [!INCLUDEssnoversion] by using [!INCLUDEssManStudioFull] or [!INCLUDEtsql].

In This Topic

Before You Begin



The log-shipping stored procedures require membership in the sysadmin fixed server role.

Using SQL Server Management Studio

To remove a log shipping secondary database

  1. Connect to the instance of [!INCLUDEssNoVersion] that is currently the log shipping primary server and expand that instance.

  2. Expand Databases, right-click the log shipping primary database, and then click Properties.

  3. Under Select a page, click Transaction Log Shipping.

  4. Under Secondary server instances and databases, click the database you want to remove.

  5. Click Remove.

  6. Click OK to update the configuration.

Using Transact-SQL

To Remove a Secondary Database

  1. On the primary server, execute sp_delete_log_shipping_primary_secondary to delete the information about the secondary database from the primary server.

  2. On the secondary server, execute sp_delete_log_shipping_secondary_database to delete the secondary database.

    If there are no other secondary databases with the same secondary ID, sp_delete_log_shipping_secondary_primary is invoked from sp_delete_log_shipping_secondary_database and deletes the entry for the secondary ID and the copy and restore jobs.

  3. On the secondary server, disable the copy and restore jobs. For more information, see Disable or Enable a Job.
