    how about if we want to automate this thing and get the dev database restored everynight from prod backup using litespeed and backup is on tape.

    exec master.dbo.xp_restore_database @database = N’DatabaseName’ ,
    @tsmconfigfile = N’\\pathfordsmfile\dsmls.opt’,
    @tsmclientnode = N’Nodename’,
    @tsmclientownerpwd = ‘***’,
    @tsmobject = N’objectname’,
    @tsmpointintime = ‘this we have to pass for last night’,
    @tsmarchive = 1,
    @filenumber = 1,
    @with = N’REPLACE’,
    @with = N’STATS = 10′,
    @with = N’MOVE N”.mdf”’,
    @with = N’MOVE N”.LDF”’,
    @affinity = 0,
    @logging = 0

    GO

    Thank you for posting this. I recently was attempting to recover a database to a point in time, and I only had Litespeed transaction log backups. Now I know how to restore them without the Litespeed Console.
