Restore Logs error

I have a job that restores a Full backup at 2:30 am. The Full backup is taken at 12:30 am. The restore leaves the database to where I can restore the logs if needed. However when I try to go and restore the logs I get SQL Error 4305: The log in this backup set begings at LSN XXXX, whi is too recent to apply to the database. An earlier log backup that includes LSN XXXX can be restored.

I was trying to restore the log backup from 1 am.

Can anyone help me out on this? What is going on?

    It looks like there was another transaction log backup taken before 1 am. Try looking in the msdb..backupset table and check if there were any log backups taken before 1 am.
