BUG #: 362257 (SHILOH_BUGS)
When you try to restore a transaction log, the restore may fail and you receive the following error message:
Server: Msg 3456, Level 21, State 1, Line 1 Could not redo log record (290513:374:7), for transaction ID (0:11173219), on page (1:224546), database 'cr' (7). Page: LSN = (290513:152:1), type = 2. Log: OpCode = 5, context 4, PrevPageLSN: (290513:357:1).

Generally, this problem might occur if the log that is failing with error 3456 was backed up while a simultaneous index job was running on the database.

Note: The fix described in this article will not correct the current bad transaction log.
