Is it possible to replace the underlying backup file that is used for virtual databases without having to recreate the virtual dbs?


The scenario is that I want to create a few virtual dbs off one backup file and then refresh the backup file (eg from production) form time to time.

Hi sqlsteve,

Unfortunately that isn't possible, both SQL Server and the HyperBac Service need to have the data from the backup file passed through them for the SQL Virtual Restore database to work.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
