I have a SQL server version 10.0.5512/ DC that was restored to a system snapshot image from 1/10/14.  After being online for about 3 hours we started to see DBs showing 'restoring' in SQL management studio. We have not run any SQL restores.. This just started on it's own.. Any ideas?  I do see some 'recovery' items in the SQL logs..

How big are the databases?

SQL brings up each DB sequentially by doing checks on it. They will show "restoring" because it essentially seeing the drives and disks  and everything else for the first time.

Most likely that is the answer as long as you know the data and log files were restored as well.

It's an entire snapshot of the server.   It was a Citrix VM snapshot.

Are the databases large (i.e. 25GB or larger)? Do you have the same amount of CPUs? RAM? Is it isolated from the production named server? Did you change the name of the server?

All these can affect the recovery process.

The name is the same..  Some DB's are huge...   I guess we'll let it run overnight.
