Hi, We have several large databases (500GB+) that we log ship to provide redundancy and other uses. We have started doing extensive re-indexing jobs on these databases over night at the weekends, which has caused some rather large transaction logs (anywhere up to 15GB). The recovery model is set to Full at the moment, and usually this is fine during day to day activities. My question is: Can we set the recovery model to Bulk before the reindexing and reset back to full afterwards again to get these files reduced in size. Would this then speed up the restore process on the standby server - which currently takes anywhere up to 10-15 hours to apply these transaction logs. This obviously causes a bottleneck which means that the standby server gets out of date quite quickly, taking a day or two to catch up again. Are we going to miss any transactions by setting it to bulk instead of full? What other implications do we need to consider? Any help would be gratefully appreciated! Cheers.
