Greetings, I have configured log shipping using SQL Server 2000 SP4 running on Windows Server 2003. My question concerns rebooting the members of the pair. If I reboot either member of the pair will SQL Server recover gracefully, figure out where it is and proceed accordingly or will the log shipping then be broken. For example, if the primary is down for maintenance at a time when the transaction log is scheduled to be backed up will SQL Server be aware that it missed a backup and recover correctly? By the same token if the standby server is down for maintenance and thus the primary is unable to connect to it will it fail or will it keep trying until the standby is back and not lose anything? I have been unable to find any information on how this works. Thanks.
