hi,

what is the best way of get rid of the log file from subscription database. it is growing big in production db. and i want to make it simple so that it'll not grow further.

shall i deattach & attach again without log file so that a new log file will be created by sql server?
is that a good practice?

Thanks,
Regards,
Ami

No. Don't do detach/attach. It's not a good practice.

Are you taking the log backup regularly?

thanks for your assitance,

though it is a production db. we don;t take log back ups as it is dwhse.

we have another db where one month of data will reside always and we can bring from it.
even if it goes we can get the same from legacy systems.

we take weekly once backup and other days incremental backup.,

You can change the database recovery model to "Simple".
I believe now the database is in "Full" recovery model.

Shrink the log file to appropriate size using DBCC SHRINKFILE command.

Yes. Log file of subscriber can be shrinked.
It should not have any impact on replication.
