Creating a log shipping plan using the wizard available from within Enterprise Console. The process to create the plan fails at the point of creating the restore jobs on the subscriber server. So the logs will never be copied or restored onto the subscriber machine as part of the log shipping plan.
The Log shipping process should create 3 jobs on the publisher server and 3 jobs on the subscriber server. The most likely reason the jobs could not be created is if there is a servername mismatch. A servername mismatch can occur as a result of the server being renamed and not updated properly within SQL Server System tables
Check to ensure there is no server name mismatch by running the following query:
If this is different to the physical name of the server then perform the following actions to update the SQL Server system tables.
In Query Analyzer, run the following sp_proc to alter the server name:
sp_addserver 'new_name', 'local'
Note that after you run the sp_addserver stored procedure, you may have to restart the SQL Server service for the change to @@SERVERNAME to take effect.
