Due to an unforeseen hardware error, I had to take our secondary replicas down for maintenance. This was really due to a storage issue and, it was decided at a higher level, to purchase a new storage system for the secondary instance. This is several weeks out from delivery and installation at this point.
This was on a system that also uses FCI with 2 active instances.
I was able to successfully remove the secondary replicas from both Availability Groups and I thought I had done this correctly (they no longer show up in the UI or when I look at the AG Dashboard. However, one one of the AG's, all of my log files are growing. When I query the sys.databases and look at the log_reuse_wait_desc for that instance it says 'AVAILBILITY_REPLICA'
I'd rather not remove the AG as the listener is actively used and would require reconfiguration of numerous web.configs and other configuration entries. But, I also am slightly worried about the log file growth.
Can anyone offer any suggestions OR tell me why, on one AG it does not appear to be growing or have the log_reuse_wait_desc of AVAILIBILITY_REPLICA but on the other it does?
Any tips out there? Thanks! Brent
