check the link, according to the diagram they can.
There is no black dot this means that they can be run at the same time.

Dots or no dots from:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa225964(SQL.80).aspx
The following text:

Note During a full database or differential backup, Microsoft® SQL Server™
backs up enough of the transaction log to produce a consistent database for when the database is restored.

Now I know the question is can a backup be started ... does not ask if it must be successful or even completed, but that is implied for why else would you do it.

So my question is: How does SQL backup a portion of the log file when the log file can not be backed up due to an open transaction.

Will somebody please explain.?

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

The real answer to this question? The user doesn't know anything about full back-ups or log back-ups. I've got 3000 other things on my plate. They'll be able to run that report in about 20 minutes... Wink

The database backup backs up all pages, then it scans the logs, grabbing pages needed to cover transactions that have taken place since the backup started. In this way it has a consistent backup while allowing users to still work on the database. The full backup does not change or alter the log, which is why you need log backups to clear the log. And this is why the log backup can be run at the same time.

Would you do this? I have seen scheduled conflict, though it's not likely you would purposely do this.
