    Unanswered: question about sqlmaint

    hi guys !
    I have a simple question , i am using the following command to backup transaction logs :

    exec dbo.xp_sqlmaint '-D Northwind -BkUpMedia DISK -BkUpLog "d:\sql\backup" -BkExt "TRN" '

    does it truncate the tranlog after backup i.e remove the unused entries from there ?

    thanks
    Sami
    P.S: can you please CC me with your answer at esa019c@motorola.com ?

    Yes, it does.

    You are welcome.

    No, I won't.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
