BACKUP LOG cannot be performed because there is no current database backup.

Error Message:
Msg 4214, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
BACKUP LOG cannot be performed because there is no current database backup.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to backup the log of a database for which there is no current database backup.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. Backup the database before you backup the log.

Versions:
All versions of SQL Server.

Example(s):
USE master;
IF DB_ID (N’MyExample’) > 0
 DROP DATABASE MyExample;
GO
CREATE DATABASE MyExample
GO
BACKUP LOG MyExample TO DISK=’E:Backup.bak’

Remarks:
In the above example we try to backup the log of the MyExample database directly after creating the database. This raises the error.
