Hello ,

I have a 2 sql servers one on site and the other offsite , they are both currently at the same state as both been restored with same bak file. I want to be able to on the onsite database make some transactions then take a Log File Backup and the use that TRN file to restore on the other site. If the database is in NonRecovery Mode , how do i get it into Recovery mode without having to to a restore of bak file?

Thanks

Just run the restore command with recovery option:
RESTORE DATABASE YourDatabaseNameHere  WITH RECOVERY

Open in new window

You can't do it without restoring a full backup first.
And because transactions are sequential you can't restore a transactional backup without restoring all the previous transactions backups that you may have.

Not doing a full backup but restoring from a full backup. It's always the first step from a restore. And NORECOVERY is not the default option so you always need to add that option to the restore command.
