Hi,

I have configured log shipping for my five locations sql database server's (Primary)  and my secondary sql database server as stand by. Every thing is working fine all the five location servers are creating backup as per the schedule and it is restoring on my secondary server.

Now I want to generate log shipping reports from all five server and view these reports on secondary server as a single report. I tried using the Log Shipping Status report by right clicking on the Server Name in Management Studio > Reports > Standard Reports > Transaction Log Shipping Status but it shows very generic report. I want detail report which will show all five server backup timing, restoration timing on secondary. A single dash board report.


Thanks.....

a more do it yourself approach?
Log Shipping Tables and Stored Procedures
e.g.
use msdb
select * from dbo.log_shipping_monitor_alert
select * from dbo.log_shipping_monitor_error_detail
select * from dbo.log_shipping_monitor_history_detail
select * from dbo.log_shipping_monitor_primary
select * from dbo.log_shipping_monitor_secondary
select * from dbo.log_shipping_primaries
select * from dbo.log_shipping_primary_databases
select * from dbo.log_shipping_primary_secondaries
select * from dbo.log_shipping_secondaries
select * from dbo.log_shipping_secondary
select * from dbo.log_shipping_secondary_databases

& there are some log shipping scripts here:
