Hi,

I did a backup of an SQL database using this code:

/* Perform a Full Backup of dbMT*/
Use master
GO
BACKUP DATABASE dbMT
TO DISK =N'C:\SQL_backup\dbMT.BAK'
WITH COMPRESSION
GO

/* Perform a Tail Log Backup of dbMT*/
BACKUP LOG dbMT
TO DISK =N'C:\SQL_backup\dbMT.TRN'
WITH COMPRESSION, NORECOVERY
GO

After that the database was stuck in stuck in “Restoring” state. I had to run this code to release it:

RESTORE DATABASE dbMT
   FROM DISK = N'C:\SQL_backup\dbMT.BAK'
   WITH REPLACE,RECOVERY

How can I do the backup without this happening?

Best regards

Leave off the NORECOVERY when you do the tail log backup
