SQL server restore database command

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi friends,

I want to restore/replace a full database using restore command. The following code I use executes with no error.

But I can't see the restored database from SQL server management studio. Refreshing the databases,restaring the management studio and restarting the system didn't help.I use windows authentication to login to SQL Server.

The restore script is auto generated from Sql Server management studio and it is working correctly when executed from the management studio.

#RequireAdmin
$objSQLDMO = ObjCreate("SQLDMO.SQLServer")
If IsObj($objSQLDMO) Then
    $objSQLDMO.LoginSecure = True
    $objSQLDMO.Connect("(local)","","")
Else
    Msgbox(0,"Error","SQL Enterprise Manager has not been installed on this computer")
EndIf
$strSQLScript="RESTORE DATABASE [ERP] FROM  DISK = N'C:\backupfile.bak' WITH  FILE = 1,  MOVE N'DynamicST' TO N'c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\ERP.mdf',  MOVE N'DynamicST_log' TO N'c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\ERP_1.ldf',  NOUNLOAD,  REPLACE,  STATS = 10"
$objSQLDMO.ExecuteImmediate($strSQLScript,0)
$Restored =0
for $lDB in $objSQLDMO.Databases
    if $lDB.Name = "ERP" Then
        msgbox(0,"Done","Restored successfully")
        $Restored =1
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next
if $Restored =0 then msgbox(0,"failed","Restore failed.")

Please help.

I'm sorry to say I've no clue about what your actual issue is.

I'm still curious about what you say about the script generation: does Sql Server management studio (I guess is an MS product) really generate native AutoIt scripts or does it merely (more likely) generate the MSSQL restore statement?

Are you sure there isn't a registered COM error handler active in your application, which silently ignores some COM error in the course of actions?

Hi jchd,

Thanks for you reply. The Sql statement/script, I used to restore is generated with the MS product SQL Server Management studio.

There were no COM or any other error occured while executing the script. I get the restored database in the $objSQLDMO.Databases list, so I'm sure that it is restored. But I don't get the databases name in the management studio listing.

If I execute the sql script directly from the management studio, then the restored database is listed with the management studio also.

Regards,

Pooja.

Thanks for clarifications. Sorry I'm unfamiliar with your context and see no clear relation with anything AutoIt can solve by itself, as the COM interface seems to be doing its job without problem. Maybe asking the question in a MsSQL centric forum would turn up more relevant answers.

Yes, thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure whether I'm using the correct object to execute the sql script.
