I need to switch to FULL recovery model for several SQL Server 2008 databases. However these are in production. Whilst doing these things out of hours is good practice I wanted to plan for any down time or interruption in service, no matter how brief.
Does anybody know the impact changing the recovery model to Full has on a production database?
Clarification: I have a whole process scripted (backup's and logging) and tested for log shipping and restoring the other end. However the one thing I couldn't find details on was if changing the model would have an impact on availability or performance during the process.
