  • You enable the AlwaysOn Availability Group feature in Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

  • You run an "ALTER DATABASE <DatabaseName> SET HADR OFF" statement to remove the secondary database from the availability group.

  • You try to restore the secondary database.

In this scenario, you receive the following error message:

Msg 4303, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
The roll forward start point is now at log sequence number
(LSN)#. Additional roll forward past LSN # is required to complete the restore sequence.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
