I'm running SQL Server 2005 and have log shipping configured for our Production database. Both the Primary and Secondary servers are running Full Recovery models. The Secondary server is configured Standby/Read-only. I also have a full nightly backup of our Production database. After implementing Log Shipping I'm trying to find a solution to maintain the Production's log .ldf file to a minimum because this file gets over 100GB every week. I found truncate log breaks the sequence of Log Shipping and read that I should run the shrink file command manually. I'm not clear on this recommendation but can anyone recommend an automated solution to keep the log file from growing this large while Log Shipping is configured?
