The SQL Server error used to occur when the SQL transaction log file becomes full or running out of space. Until or unless the log file utilizes the space that available on the desk, this will expand the transaction log file space.
Usually, the file is filled when the SQL server database is online or if in recovery mode.
As a part of our server management services, we use to fix SQL server error 9002 on your behalf. For further detailed information, you can contact our technical team support for any assistance
Fixing the error.
A typical Error 9002 will look like the one given below:
Follow the steps to fix this error:
Paramount thing is to create a backup and truncate the translation logs
Ensure to make log space to be available.
Try to move the log file toward another disk drive
Expand the log file size
Add another log file on a separate disk
Try to Complete or kill a long-running transaction
Create a backup and truncate the transaction logs
If the database is full or bulked with the logged recovery model and without the transaction log is backed up, you need to ensure to take the backup of transaction logs and then allow the database engine to truncate the transaction logs
This will free some space for new transactions.
- Make the disk space available
You can either delete the files or move to some other file on which the transaction file contained.
- Move log file to another disk drive
Try to move the log file to another disk space, if you were not able to make any changes in the available disk space for a drive on which the transaction log file contains.
Ensure to keep these points in mind
Ensure whether the disk space has enough space for new transaction logs
Follow the command to detach the database
This action will make the log file unavailable as long as we do not re-attach it.
Executive the following, in order to re-attach the database.
Increase the log file size.
You can increase the file size if it has enough space on the log disk.
In order to increase the log file size, please do follow any of the following.
1. Produce a single growth increment
2. Enable autogrow by the ALTER DATABASE statement
Add or enlarge the log file
You can add an extra log file for the database in order to increase the file size space.
Use the ALTER DATABASE ADD LOG FILE to gain the additional log file on a separate disk
Use MODIFY FILE clause of the ALTER DATABASE to enlarge the log file.
Complete or kill a long-running transaction
Discovering long-running transactions
A very long-running transaction can cause the transaction log to fill.
Use one of the following to check long-running transaction
2. DBCC OPENTRAN
Kill a transaction
It will be better to end the process if it’s taking too long.
We can use the KILL statement for doing this.
