KB4515772 - FIX: Transaction log isn't truncated on a single node Availability Group in SQL Server

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 2SQL Server 2016 DeveloperSQL Server 2016 Enterprise


Assume that you have an Always On Availability Group (AG) with only primary replica (no secondary replicas). Over time, you may encounter the following error:
Error 9002. The transaction log for database is full due to 'AVAILABILITY_REPLICA'. 
When you perform a transaction log backup, the error won't be resolved as the log is not truncated and uses all the available space.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
