Restore MSSQL database using batch script

If you are looking for a tool which can restore the MS SQL DB backup from the production environment to the development environment, this script is just the one that you are after.

In my example, the script does the following things:

1) Copy of the latest pro db backup to local.

2) Close all connections of the dev db that is going to be replaced.

3) Restore the pro db to dev db.

4) (Optional) Configure the restored db to meet the dev environment needs. (In my case, the db is used by the software named TechnologyOne).

The script can be downloaded from here:
