Hi. I have a problem that seems to be specific to SQL server 2008. When restoring a backup (each backup contains multiple databases), the SQL server will nearly always start a CHECKPOINT command (which I can see when running "sp_who2"). This causes the backup restore to fail because the database is being locked by the CHECKPOINT command, and the CHECKPOINT command remains active for several minutes afterwards before dissappearing. This happens on databases that are not in use (of course) when the backup restore is started, and even after stopping and restarting the SQL server service (or computer) just before starting the restoration. It happens only on SQL Server 2008. 2005 and earlier does not seem to start the CHECKPOINT command, or if it does, it finishes before I'm able to spot it in sp_who2, and before it causes any problems with the backup restore. Is it possible to somehow disable this CHECKPOINT feature, or reconfigure it so that it works properly, like in SQL server 2005?
