This question already has an answer here:
I have set up log shipping between 2 SQL Servers (SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2012),
At first i took a full backup of the first one and restored it on the other one and than i set up the log shipping,
The databases first backup-restore took a few hours and i wish to know:
- how does the log shipping process knows from when to start the logs it is shipping? does it start from when the last backup-restore process happened or from the moment the log shipping itself is set ?
- Can i be sure that no information was lost in these few hours ?
