Hi,

I need to setup a reporting database which basically needs to be in almost real time sync with the production database. The idea is to offload reporting onto another server so not to interfere with the online database.
I thought log shipping would be a good idea - but i read on forums this may not be that good as when it applies the logs the database is nt open for normal use;
Can somone please give me some ideas on what to do ?

thanks
H

First you need to know what EXACTLY you need and I'm saying that because of your comment:

<<I thought log shipping would be a good idea - but i read on forums this may not be that good as when it applies the logs the database is nt open for normal use>>


So...if you need it for (SSRS) reporting purpose only in order to offload your OLTP database then that is one way to do it - that server can be used to READ ONLY and that's what SSRS should do from that database

Other than that if by <<...the database is nt open for normal use;>> you mean READ and WRITE on the secondary then you can use REPLICATION for that matter.
