I'm trying to do a large
INSERT operation from a database to another. But I get an error message:
Msg 9002, Level 17, State 4, Line 1 The transaction log for database '_ARCHIVE_mydatabase' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases
Things I've done so far:
- Checked that the disk has enough disk space
- checked that the transaction log file size is small (1024 KB)
- checked that the log_reuse_wait_desc was NOTHING
- checked that the recovery mode for _ARCHIVE_mydatabase is Simple
- restarted the server
I also tried to run the query from this SF answer:( The Transactional Log is Full) but it doesn't help.
Also we have many
_ARCHIVE databases and all of them have the same error!
What else can I try and why is this happening?
