This is totally possible, and it can be 11 scripted out through the log shipping setup 10 GUI. The only obstacle to overcome in the 9 script that it generates will need to connect 8 to both the primary and the secondary in 7 the same script. This can be accomplished 6 by used the SQLCMD mode commands of SQLCMD 5 using the CONNECT command, making sure to 4 put GOs between the connections. As a bonus 3 you can also execute OS commands (copy, del, etc.) so 2 you can script out the backup and restore 1 as well. See example below.

-- Execute the following statements at the Primary to configure Log Shipping 
-- for the database [primary\instance1].[mydb],
-- The script needs to be run at the Primary in the context of the [msdb] database.
