SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

When you restore a database in Microsoft SQL Server 2005, the restore operation may take a long time to finish. This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You create a replication on the database.
  • The database contains many subscriptions for the articles in a publication.
  • You restore the database by using the WITHOUT REPLICATION option. The WITHOUT REPLICATION option is the default restore option.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because SQL Server calls the sp_MSrepl_dropsubscription stored procedure for each subscription for each article.

When you restore a database, SQL Server uses the sp_MSrepl_dropsubscription stored procedure to delete the replication and to delete all the subscriptions. When SQL Server calls the sp_MSrepl_dropsubscription stored procedure, SQL Server deletes each subscription for each article in the syssubscriptions table. Therefore, the restore operation may take a long time if the database contains many subscriptions.

For example, assume that each call to the sp_MSrepl_dropsubscription stored procedure takes 1 second. If the database contains 9,000 subscriptions, the restore operation takes about 2.5 hours to finish.
