Blocking issue+SQL Server 2012

Hi All,

We are facing blocking issue  with below command while restoring full DB backup with NORECOVERY option (while configuring DB mirroring). We are trying to kill below process but again and again below command is causing blocking issue.

Can you please advise how to fix this blocking issue.

Command that is causing blocking issue:

This seems a script to create a database.
Can you run the following command and post the result here?

NOTE: Replace 'D:\BackupFileName.bak' with the real path and backup file name.

We are configuring DB mirroring from principle to Mirror. So 1st we took full backup & Tlog backup of principle server. While restoring these backups on Mirror server we are facing blocking issues with above command.

On Option 2:
Step 1: Perform T log backup
Step 2: shrink log file
Step 3: Perform full backup
Step 4: Again perform Tlog backup
Step 5: Restore full (step 3) and Tlog (Step 4) backup on mirror server
Step 6: delete step 1Tlog backup

Does this make sense?

Can we avoid blocking issue using above steps? Pls confirm
Step 4 isn't necessary.
Since the restore with a smaller transaction log is faster I think you wouldn't have the blocking issue.
Looking forward for your feedback.
