Log Shipping is set from Server A to Server B for database X
SQL Server 2008 Std Edn 64 bit on both servers
Database X State at Secondary Server (B): Restoring

Problem: DB's Log file containing drive got full-What to do?

Please suggest any plans to overcome this situation other than to reconfigure it.


Thanks in advance,

Which location is full, the backup location on the primary or the copy location on the secondary?
What retention values did you set for your LS plan?

Hi,

Mahesh:
Drive size in which DB log file is placed at secondary server: 25 GB
Size of the Database that is being logshipped: 23 GBs

Perry:

Databse log file containing drive at secondary server is full. All other locations like the backup location on the primary, the copy location on the secondary has enough disk space.

What retention values did you set for your LS plan?
Delete Copied files after 3 days

Thanks,

Regards,

Ankur

OK, so how often are the restores being applied by the restore job?
If they're restored hourly you could probably reduce the retention on the secondary, either that or get more disk space to support the retention period.

Hi Perry:

Restore job runs after every 15 minutes. Suggested points are Ok for future perspective.

Can you please suggest as per current scenario, where Log file containing disk at secondary server got full? Do we have any other optioin to resolve this issue apart from reconfiguring log shipping?

Thanks,

OK, so you probably don't need a 3 day retention period

Check the server and see what's filling up the drive!!

Why do you want to reconfigure Log Shipping?
You can change the retention without reconfiguring LS.
