Hello all,

we lost 2 of our drives and lost the data (array), once we got the new drives, rebuilt the array and restored, i am trying to connect SQL DBs (sharepoint) back and getting error regarding the confi database log file.
that is one issue,
the second and probably bigger,
the backups are full every friday for the farm database, and the differential daily on weekdays on the L drive which is the database folders, i was able to restore the L drive but the farm resore isnt going through, it runs for one hour with 0% status and 0 MB transfer (ArcServ).
am I missing something, do i need to stop SQL services? or detach the DBs in order for this to go through properly? and is it causing the LOG file error when reattaching the DBs.
I am not that familair with DBs and sharepoint restores and did not expect this present for the holidays. Pls assist asap

thx and happy holidays
