Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You create a database in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2.

  • You update the logical name of the database by using the ALTER DATABASE statement.

  • You perform a full backup of the database.


    Note A full database backup file is generated after the backup is performed.

  • You try to restore the database from the database backup file.

In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

Msg 3234, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Logical file '<logical file name>' is not part of database '<database name>'. Use RESTORE FILELISTONLY to list the logical file names.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

If you use the RESTORE FILELISTONLY statement to check the backup file, you find that the logical file name that you updated is corrupted. The last character of the logical file name is truncated. For example, you try to update the logical name for a database to DB_modified. However, it is incorrectly changed to DB_modifie in the backup file.


Note This issue does not occur if you restart the SQL Server service after the logical file name is updated.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

Workaround

To work around this issue, use one of the following two methods:

  • After the logical file name is modified, run the following statements to restart the database:
    ALTER DATABASE <database name> SET OFFLINE
    ALTER DATABASE <database name> SET ONLINE

  • When you modify the logical file name, append a dummy space character in the new logical name. For example, if you want to change the logical name to DB_modified, use the following statement to modify the logical file name:
    ALTER DATABASE <database name> MODIFY FILE (NAME=N'<database name>', NEWNAME='DB_modified ') -- Append ' ' to NEWNAME
