I had this question after viewing Cannon shrink log file because of minimum log space required..

I found the above answered question.  I have a similar issue but someone initially told us to use sp_replflush.  We did that but still receive can't shrink because of min log space required.  What do we need to do so we can shrink the log file.  The database is a test db that was restored from a production db that had replication on it but don't need on the test db.  I guess we need all the steps involved when we copy a production db with replication to a test environment without it having any log transactions to fill from replication.
