Hi Experts,
Need a small suggestion on the below issue.
I have observer that log file size is around 100GB and the log_reuse_wait_desc shows as Replication and REP_ database is in simple recovery model.
First time I am seeing Snapshot replication will also cause log to wait on replication. We tried several ways to mark transactions as repl done but no luck and the log reuse wait still shows as replication.
When I run dbcc opentran it is showing as below.
Replicated Transaction Information:
Oldest distributed LSN : (0:0:0)
Oldest non-distributed LSN : (190181:4701335:41)
So the Tlog was not truncating because of oldest non-distributed LSN.
Any thought on this would be appreciated

Thank You All In Advance

You need to investigate why replication is not working or remove replication temporarily. You can't clear the log until replication is fixed. What does replication monitor show?
