Logical file is not part of database error

Logical file is not part of database error

Logical file is not part of database error

(OP)
I am setting up my first restore stored procedure for my test server. I am getting the following error: Logical file is not part of database. RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally

CODE

BEGIN
	RESTORE DATABASE [rptdata_ahs] FROM  DISK = N'D:\Backup\ahsfull.bak' 
	WITH  FILE = 1,  MOVE N'\\AMSPBI\F$\Data\rptdata_ahs' TO N'D:\Data\rptdata_ahs.mdf',  
	MOVE N'\\AMSPBI\F$\Data\rptdata_ahs_log' TO N'D:\Data\rptdata_ahs.ldf',  NOUNLOAD,  STATS = 10
END 

The current backup files are located on a server called \\AMSPBI\F$\Data
This code is being run on a server called AMSPBI2
I want the mdf and ldf files in the \\AMSPBI\F$\Data directory to be copied into the AMSPBI2 D drive Data dirctory

Any help is appreciated

Tom

RE: Logical file is not part of database error

(OP)
When I do a the restore command

RESTORE FILELISTONLY
FROM DISK = 'D:\Backup\ahsfull.bak'
GO

The results I get are:
Logical Name Physical Name
rptdata_ahs F:\Data\rptdata_ahs.mdf
rptdata_ahs_log F:\Data\rptdata_ahs_log.ldf

RE: Logical file is not part of database error

syntax for restore is move "logical_name" to "pysical_name"

so from your restore filelistonly its clear that the restore command should be

CODE

RESTORE DATABASE [rptdata_ahs] FROM  DISK = N'D:\Backup\ahsfull.bak' 
	WITH  FILE = 1,  
        MOVE N'rptdata_ahs' TO N'D:\Data\rptdata_ahs.mdf',  
	MOVE N'rptdata_ahs_log' TO N'D:\Data\rptdata_ahs.ldf',  NOUNLOAD,  STATS = 10
