Cannot create Log backup on MiniWAS 620 to upgrade SAPDB 7.3



I have installed MiniWAS 620 and would like to upgrade from the provided version of SAPDB 7.3 to 7.5. I have installed service packs to 37 following Craigs excellent instructions.

Having tried sdbupd I have used the DB manager to make a complete backup of the database and an incremental backup... However when I try to take a log backup I get the message -24988 sql error [backup_save "LOG_BACKUP" LOG RECOVERY]; -3028, Invalid LOG MODE

When trying to run sdbupd I get the message no log backup exists but I cant seem to create one. If anyone has come across this I would be most appreciative.

I also keep getting histlost messages in my backup history whenever I run an incremental backup.
