I ran a backup of my SQL Server database using the backup utility in the Server GUI. The backup works fine and I can restore on that machine without issue. I cannot, however, restore the backup on another machine. It starts to load and everything looks ok, but the 'restore' process just sits idle forever (I say forever as I let it run for 6 hours one day with no sign of completing. This is only a 1GB database so the restore time should be quick.)
This was on a backup database that had the exact same version of SQL Server and even the same schema. Is there something I am missing? Is there a better way to do a recovery on another server?
