We currently have 1 exchange server and just added a secondary member in a DAG.  Prior to adding the Setup our VEEAM was truncating logs at the end of a successful back up.  After adding the secondary number VEEAM successfully completes the backup job but the logs will not truncate.  Please help?  we don;t understand why it wont truncate and have seen items on the web regarding DAGS and VEEAM challenges.

Hello,

We actually had it connected on our local network before we shipped it off to its secondary location.  As far as we can tell the logs were up fully replicated over.  we checked to see the oldest log file and it was from the day prior before starting the back up.  The back up ran successful but yet the logs werent truncated.

Hi,
Did you try dismounting and mounting database?
what is the status of Content Indexing? is it healthy?

In one of my environment restarting the ADTopology service would flush the logs.
