Hello all,
I´m getting the following error in errolog file in my Sql 6.5:
Can't allocate space for object 'Syslogs' in database 'msdb' because the 'logsegment' segment is full.
If you ran out of space in Syslogs, dump the transaction log.
Otherwise, use ALTER DATABASE or sp_extendsegment to increase the size
 of the segment.

I dont know what to do?
Can anybody help me? and tell me what to do?
My hard disk is almost full cause this message is increasing the size of error log file.

thank you very much.

Your logsegement of your database is full:

1) Dump the transaction log as follows:
   DUMP TRANSACTION DBNAME WITH NO_LOG (where DBNAME is your DB)
2) Review the size of the logsegment of your database, you may need to increase it. Typically it should be 25% of your data segment.
3) You may also wish to change your database option to truncate log on checkpoint, so the log is truncated when a transaction completes.
