I want to restore database A from system 1 to system 2.  Database A exists on both sys 1 & 2 but sys 1 is more current (production).  I have a backup of sys 1 and have copied to sys 2.  I go into Sql 2005 manager and right click on database A, Tasks, Restore, Database.  Restore database window I click "From device" and add the database ".bak" file and it appears in the window under "Select the backup sets to restore".  Now my question -- in that window that shows the backup set to restore under field "Server" it show the system 1 (production) and I am concerned that when I click restore it will restore this backup over my production database on server 1 even though the .bak file is on sys 2 and I am running restore from sql server on sys 2.  Will it restore the database on sys 2 or sys 1?
Thanks

it will restore to the database where you have clicked onto to restore to. it will not restore to the system where you have taken the backup unless you are connected to exactly that system
