    Hello there, am new to sql server 2005 and i would like to know if it's possible to do log shipping on one computer with two instances having one instance as a primary server and the other as a secondary server. If it's possible how is it done?

    Welcome to forums.
    First of all it si possible to log ship between two instances.
    Please refer http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190016(SQL.90).aspx for more details.
    I just mention a couple of things.
    • Make sure your primary database is in full or bulk-logged mode
    • Go to database properties and select Log shipping in Management Studio.
    • When specifying the endpoint give a different port number for the secondary server.
    • Backup the primary database and restore in secondary server. You may have to restore the tail log backup too (some times)
    Things should work smoothly,
    Hope this helps
