Hi Again

Can anyone tell me if there are any housekeeping tasks that should not be performed when mirroring and / or log shipping?

I am currently running (on the principle);

Check db integrity,
Rebuild Index
Reorganise Index
Update statistics

Along with a full back up and the various clean up tasks.

I am not seeing any issues as such at the moment, but have seen a number of people reporting that rebuilding and reorganising indexes can break log shipping - are we currently being lucky?

Your thoughts, as always, are greatfully received.

Sue
