sp_change_log_shipping_primary_database must be run from the master database on the primary server. This stored procedure does the following:

  1. Changes the settings in the log_shipping_primary_database record, if necessary.

  2. Changes the local record in log_shipping_monitor_primary on the primary server using supplied arguments, if necessary.

  3. If the monitor server is different from the primary server, changes record in log_shipping_monitor_primary on the monitor server using supplied arguments, if necessary.

Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role can run this procedure.

This example illustrates the use of sp_change_log_shipping_primary_database to update the settings associated with the primary database AdventureWorks2012 .

EXEC master.dbo.sp_change_log_shipping_primary_database 
 @database = N'AdventureWorks' 
, @backup_directory = N'c:\LogShipping' 
, @backup_share = N'\\tribeca\LogShipping' 
, @backup_retention_period = 1440 
, @backup_threshold = 60 
, @threshold_alert = 0 
, @threshold_alert_enabled = 1 
, @history_retention_period = 1440 
,@monitor_server_security_mode = 1
,@backup_compression = 1
