    Unanswered: restore process hangs when restoring sql 2000 db

    i did a full backup of a database on machine 1 and am trying to restore it to machine 2.

    when i try and restore on machine 2 it brings up the restore process window and just hangs, nothing happens. i'm restoring through EM

    i've done plenty of restores on sql 2005 and never ran into an issue like this.

    suggestions?

    I had this problem at one shop for some reason using the enterprise manager. I eventually scripted my restores and I used the WITH STATS to watch the progress. It never hung in the query analyzer but for some reason it would get hung up nusing the enterprise manager.

    oh yeah and explicity use WITH RECOVERY and WITH REPLACE.
