Hello Experts

We are going to setup a logshipping between our primary SQL server and DR site. let's say this is about database1 . that's the only database that needs log shipping.

1- We wanted to use same SQL server installation in DR site to run more databases (like database 2 ,3 ) for general purposes with other softwares . would that be possible ?

2- Once settiing up logshipping , I know that the process needs an extra SQL server to watch and monitor logshipping process. can that database server be used for other SQL instances ? (like run some databases as well) or it needs to be dedicated.

you can use the same server and add more databases as long as your server performance dosent drop below your acceptable levels.

You can very well use the DR Server for other purposes as LogShipping is only at the Database Level and does not have any impact on other databases.

2- Once settiing up logshipping , I know that the process needs an extra SQL server to watch and monitor logshipping process. can that database server be used for other SQL instances ? (like run some databases as well) or it needs to be dedicated.

You can have a separate monitor Server other than the primary or secondary Servers Or use one of them as monitor Server.

A normal practice (though, not the best way to do it) is to setup the secondary server as monitot server.

Thanks,
