SQL Transaction Log backup succeeds with errors

This article applies to:

  • Product edition: Phoenix Cloud
  • Feature category: SQL

Problem description

SQL log backup succeeds with errors when the backup of the log files of a few DBs got skipped. The log chain of the DBs that were skipped from backup appears broken.


A third-party or native SQL log backup running on the server may have caused the log chain to break.

Disable or remove the third-party SQL log backup and initiate a manual backup from the Phoenix Management Console for the affected SQL instance (backup set). The subsequent transaction log backups must complete successfully.
