Msg 9002, Level 17, State 6, Line 10 The transaction log for database ‘Restoredbname’ is full due to ‘REPLICATION’.It is also observed that log_reuse_wait_desc was showing “REPLICATION” for the database.
As we know this db was enabled with CDC in Production environment, the first attempt was to disable CDC on restored database.
Select log_reuse_wait_desc,* From sys.databases
use Restoredbname sys.sp_cdc_disable_db
Msg 22831, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_cdc_disable_db_internal, Line 262 [Batch Start Line 2] Could not update the metadata that indicates database Restoredbname is not enabled for Change Data Capture. The failure occurred when executing the command ‘(null)’. The error returned was 9002: ‘The transaction log for database ‘Restoredbname’ is full due to ‘REPLICATION’.’. Use the action and error to determine the cause of the failure and resubmit the request.We also noticed checkpoint was also not successful due to serious disk issue.
Could not write a checkpoint record in database Restoredbname because the log is out of space. Contact the database administrator to truncate the log or allocate more space to the database log files. Msg 5901, Level 16, State 1, Line 10 One or more recovery units belonging to database ‘Restoredbname’ failed to generate a checkpoint. This is typically caused by lack of system resources such as disk or memory, or in some cases due to database corruption. Examine previous entries in the error log for more detailed information on this failure. Msg 9002, Level 17, State 6, Line 10 The transaction log for database ‘Restoredbname’ is full due to ‘REPLICATION’.Finally, we decided to apply sp_repldone on the database as below. When xactid is NULL, xact_seqno is NULL, and reset is 1, all replicated transactions in the log are marked as distributed. This is useful when there are replicated transactions in the transaction log that are no longer valid and you want to truncate the log. sp_removedbreplication stored procedure removes all replication objects on the publication database on the Publisher instance of SQL Server or on the subscription database on the Subscriber instance of SQL Server. Once we executed the commands, we were able to shrink the file and the size has been reclaimed to os.
The solution discussed is NOT a general solution nor for Production environments. This should ONLY be used for non-production or lower environments where the restored database is used for testing purpose and truncating log is not a concern! I’d like to grow my readership. If you enjoyed this blog post, please share it with your friends!

Thanks a ton
ya man had an odd issue in a lower environment. fixed it up.
