Dear all,

I am maintaining a large database of 100 gb with 12 subscriber. The problem is While shrinking log from enterprise manager, it is not decreasing. But the size of log is increasing everytime.
Please give me solution on that issue.It is an emergency. Please.

is your DB in full recovery model? try to backup the log first before you shrink it. But why you want to shrink it anyway?

Even i have the same problem. I have taken the Log backup , but how do i reduce my log file size.

1. Shrinking is one option, but i get error like "cannot shrink logical files are in use"
2. By changing the recovery mode from full to simple, i am able to shrink the file and then change it back to full, but i feel that it is not a good practice to change the recovery mode and it will be a problem at the time of restore activity.

Is there anyone who could suggest me with ideas or steps to reduce the log file size?
