On one of my databases, the reset log has happned about a couple of months ago. But my team has not registetered the new incarnation in the catalog and have been backing up the databases.

Please let me know if those backups that have been taken till date are useful or not?

I think we can use it if we can set the database to a certain incanation key. But I am not sure.

Pls advice.

Perhaps you should immediately register the current incarnation & do a fullbackup.

>Please let me know if those backups that have been taken till date are useful or not?
You should get a copy of your tested Recovery Procedure, grab a copy of most recent full backup and do a test DB restoration.
Then you'll know for sure exactly what you have.

I think reset database should do the job.

Thankyou.

I was just about to do a restoration that is when I 'discovered' that the production database incarnation is not the current one on the recovery catalog.

The choice to bet your job on "should do the job" rather than actually testing only impacts you (for now).

I'd know that I would sleep more soundly if I knew I had a documented & tested Recovery Plan that the junior night operator could follow & succeed.

You should be able to had the Recovery Plan to your mother & she would have a 100% success rate for completing the DB recovery.

The decision for future actions are all yours & so are the consequences (both good or bad).
