    Is possible to backup transaction log during running differential backup? Native tool can do this from version 2005.

    Thx for response.

    Yes.  A transaction log backup can run at the same time as full and/or differential backups. You can not run full and differential backups concurrently though.  One thing to watch out for, though, is running a subclient that has databases in SIMPLE recovery model.  Databases in SIMPLE recovery model can NOT run transaction log backups and will convert to differential.  Either filter those databases out of the subclient into their own without transaction log backups scheduled, or use an additional setting to skip them from converting:
