Some operations have no sense inside a transaction. I surprise to see so many wrong answers.

I guessed wrongly that because it makes no sense to do a backup within a transactiobn, then the transaction would be ignored and it would work.

I'm not sure what the question was supposed to teach us though - would anybody really try doing a backup inside a transaction?!

Had to read through the BACKUP item in Books Online to be sure what would happen here, because it certainly makes no sense to put a backup inside a transaction and I had no idea what SQL would actually do if you tried!

I thought this was on error then rollback. I remember you could test a backup without anything really happening, just a test to see if the wirings, pipes and screws are correct.

Woo hoo, I finally got one right.

Believe it or not, a simple Google search reveals people did try to run a backup within a transaction:

What were they thinking?

I learned something. I thought that the backup would be OK, but the there would be no history for the backup in msdb.

Good question.

My logic as well. Tough question.

I think the proper way to "rollback" a backup is to do a restore. ;-)
