I have divided my database (40 GB) in many logical filegroups

-DataFilegroup1
-DataFilegroup2
-DataFilegroup3

I have done this because I want to achieve benifits of not backing up -DataFilegroup3 because this is earmarked for readonly data. Now because I take the differential backup only for DataFilegroup1 and DataFilegroup2 then what should be my stategy for taking the transactional backup? Any headsup?

if you have kept the third file group as readonly then there is no need to take the log backup of that filegroup except once assuming there might be something in it ...rest, you can take log backups for the 2 file groups ..

Logs and log backups don't have anything to do with the data file groups. If the third group is read only, then no log activity will be recorded against it. When you back up your logs, you simply back up your logs. The activity therein will only reflect the logged activity, which, if you've got one group marked as read only, will exclude that group. It's that easy.

Thanks. I shall take the log backup for complete DB and apply the same in case of any failure. You are quite correct as when the DB is used as readonly then nothing would be logged...
