SQL SERVER – FIX: The Log for Database Cannot be Shrunk Until All Secondaries Have Moved Past the Point Where the Log was Added

While preparing for a demo for a client I was hit with an interesting error in AlwaysOn Availability Group backup and restore scenario. In my lab setup, I had four nodes SQLAUTH1 to SQLAUTH4 and I have always on high availability turned on SQL Server 2016. I played and did several operations with database and found that I have bloated the transaction log file to 100 GB. And now I need to shrink the transaction log on SQLAUTH1. As soon as I did that, I was welcomed with below message about database cannot be shrunk until all secondaries have moved past the point.
