I will be doing a full backup of a 39 Gb database ( compressed) over a WAN connection to a remote location to setup log shipping.  It will take about 15 hours to copy.  I know that during that time I cannot do any log backups but I assume I can do differentials without affecting the LSN for log shipping?

Hi,

Indeed, you can do differentials but please note that you can also take copy-only log backups also - you need to use BACKUP LOG <db_name> TO DISK = '<log backup location>' WITH COPY_ONLY .

Please note that COPY_ONLY log backup doesn't truncate trasaction log.

Regards,
Daniel
