Exchange 2013 DAG backup

Experts out there,
How is the log being truncated in a DAG environment?
Do we have to perform a full backup to truncate the logs in DAG or copy backup?

you should take a semi regular full backup then inbetween use a differential or incremental depending on what your recovery objectives etc are and resources available.

Most incremental backups should clear the logs if that is what you are wanting to achieve without running a full backup.

In your dag, when you backup 1 of the copies of 1 database. It will if it works properly clear the logs on the other copies.

I prefer to use the passive database to backup.

What product will you be using to backup?
You backup single node.
The long answer.

Not that I ever saw.

Can you see these logs?
These are the events logged when backing up and purging the logs.

I am not running the backup yet, I am researching about the backup whether we need full/copy backup for Exchange 2013 in DAG where circular logging disabled.
