Hi All
I'm looking for a script that will restore (and overwrite) Ms sql server 2005 database from backup file. Basically I've got two identical databases in two location (one works as backup) and I transfer backup files over night and restore them next day. It would be nice to have a script that will restore them automatically.

Please advise

If you would be doing the file transfer then if you specify a standard file name for the backup file, then you can

1. Save the script provided above as a *.sql file
2. Using Windows scheduler you can execute this sql file using SQLCMD scripts.

Automation is done.
