Currently, I have setup log shipping from production server to DR server. Now, the doubt is that whenever my production server goes down or lets say data center crashes, I will switch it to DR site. On DR, I will change the mode of database from "Restoring/No Recovery" to "Recovery" mode. But, now the problem is that whenever my data center recovers lets say it recovers in 2 hours, then I want to switch again to my production server. So, when it gets switched to PROD server then how can I change database mode to "Restoring" state on DR site to able to start log shipping again?

Basically, you have to configure log shipping from the former secondary (now primary) server to the former primary (now secondary) server.
