m running this code for backing up and to have backup log

backup database adventureworks
to disk = 'g:radvent6.bak'
mirror to disk='g:radvent7.bak'
with format,checksum,stop_on_error

use adventureworks
insert into HumanResources.department

backup log adventureworks
to disk='g:radvent6.trn'

after the backup log command executes shows the error as

The statement BACKUP LOG is not allowed while the recovery model is SIMPLE. Use BACKUP DATABASE or change the recovery model using ALTER DATABASE.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
BACKUP LOG is terminating abnormally.

As the error clearly states, backup log is not allowed when the database is in simple recovery (which AdventureWorks is). If you want to plan with log backups, switch it to full recovery (alter database), take a full database backup and then you'll be able to make log backups.
