Backup Under the Full Recovery Model
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
If the database is part of a transactional replication then it can't be in SIMPLE recovery mode. It requires to be in FULL recovery mode.
Eugene ZCommented:
just FYI:
"What recovery model is required on a replicated database?

Replication functions properly using any of the recovery models: simple, bulk-logged, or full. Merge replication tracks change by storing information in metadata tables. Transactional replication tracks changes by marking the transaction log, but this marking process is not affected by the recovery model."
