error descr: "The log in this backup set cannot be applied because it is on a recovery path inconsistent with the database." I noticed a similar post but it had no resolution, here is my situation. Hardware: Primary server: SQL Server 2000 SP3 Enterprise ed (8.00.760) Win 2003 Server Enterprise ed Secondary Server: SQL Server 2000 SP3 Enterprise ed (8.00.760) Win 2003 Server Std ed I setup log shipping using the maintenance wizard. Everything is wonderful for 2-3 days until I get an alert from the monitor and the 4330 error shows up ( no structural changes made on the dbs during this period). My questions are: 1) why? 2) how can I fix it?
