hi all,

our log shipping failed because the network link between primary and secondary is too busy for the whole day and copying a 6GB log takes 23 hours and we stop it until now, which the network is going ok, log file can be copy.

but the restore job keep failing, application log has this :

The log shipping secondary database <server>.<DB>has restore threshold of 180 minutes and is out of sync. No restore was performed for 11229 minutes. Restored latency is 63 minutes. Check agent log and logshipping monitor information.

and the log history message just said :

The job failed.  The Job was invoked by Schedule 15 (DefaultRestoreJobSchedule).  The last step to run was step 1 (Log shipping restore log job step.).

the log retention period is 2 days, I am not sure what happened?

please share experience.
