I'm running SQL 2012 and having an issue truncating the transaction logs through the maintenance plan. I don't see an option to truncate. Additionally, I did a manual shrink of the _log file for the LDF database but it remained the same size. I even switched to simple recovery model but still had to run a T-SQL command manually as shown below.
Ultimately want this to happen automatically since I need FULL recovery mode for Mirroring purposes
DBCC SHRINKFILE (ACCESS_log,300)
Is there an easier way?
