automate the restore

How do I automate the backup of 200 databases in a server and automate the restore all of them on destination server running on differnt machine.
Well, it depends on how complicated you want to get with this. Tara Duggan has some good scripts at . You could just schedule them on both sides, using a table to record backup success so you know when to run the restores on the other server. You could also use log shipping if you have Enterprise Edition. Is the number of databases highly variable; and are you trying to account for that fact? MeanOldDBA

You can take advantage of SQL Server 2000 log shipping in this case where the Transaction log are restored from the primary server to the secondary server depending upon the scheduled intervals. Take help of link about the log shipping. If not you can search under this website for tips and tricks of maintaining the backup/restore operations and also books online will help you to get about the syntax. And also about the standby servers information. Satya SKJ
