Message Text

An error occurred while processing the log for database '%.*ls'. If possible, restore from backup. If a backup is not available, it might be necessary to rebuild the log.

An error was encountered while processing the log during rollback, recovery, or replication. This could indicate an error detected by the operating system-or an internal consistency error detected by SQL Server.

One of the following actions will correct this error:

  • Restore from a backup.

  • Rebuild the log.

Also, check system event and error logs to identify issues within the system that may have caused the problem.
