I am using SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition. I am trying to implement log shipping, but the log shipping option is not showing in the database properties window. The database recovery option is bulk logged.

  • In the properties window the last page select is extended properties. And i dont know how to insert a image in the comment it look like only text is accepting – Shyam Prasad Oct 16 '14 at 11:34
  • You can insert an image into the body of your question (just hit the "edit" button). – Thomas Stringer Oct 16 '14 at 11:46
  • Do you have proper permissions? – Kin Shah Oct 16 '14 at 12:29
  • which permission do you mean? #kin – Shyam Prasad Oct 17 '14 at 4:47


Just to make sure the database selected should be a user and not any system databases.

But in many cases we have seen this even if its user database is selected and the option of log shipping is missing.

Solution: Re-install SSMS with the Management Tools - Complete option checked.
