Shrink Tran Log Error?

The tran log on my test database has grown quite a bit, and I did a tran log backup, but now I want to shrink the tran log because it is taking up so much space on my test server. I tried to do a DBCC SHRINKFILE, but I receive the following message: Cannot shrink log file 2 (filename) because all logical log files are in use. What does this mean? I thought that users can be in the database when you do a DBCC SHRINKFILE? Thanks,

No, more when you have full recovery model. Luis Martin

May be still uncommitted transactions are existing in that log file.
Check with DBCC OPENTRAN statement, check SQL server error log for any other information. Satya SKJ
