Is it possible to fully recover a database from a snapshot plus transaction log backups? By snapshot I mean a crash-consistent clone of the Server - in this case an LVM snapshot that is shipped offsite while the live server continues to operate and generate logs.
To clarify, the LVM snapshots are of the entire Virtual Machine including OS, SQL Server and everything else. This snapshot is then transported to a remote site and successfully started on the host. I know I can at this point restore a full backup and recover with the logs, but I wondered if it was possible to skip the full backup/restore step and use the snapshot as a base?
