Copy, Attach or Restore DB from CD to SQL Server 2000
Posted on 2006-11-13
Hi ! I have a DB which I unzip from a CD 150 files including .mdf & .ldf & put in (Actually log is in different drive), but I want DB available ASAP, and getting Error so I put in same directory.
E:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\abc.mdf
E:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\abc.ldf
and 139 .ndf files.
I try to attach with Enterprize Manage but got error then tried with sp_attach_db (Error 8144: Procedure or function sp_attach_db has too many arguments specified).
Is there any other or simple way I can resolve this problem.
Note: The server already had DB XYZ which I already Deleted, and restored want to restored with the Same Name I don't have any .BAK file, so i can't force restore any alternate.
Any Help will be highly appreciated ASAP, as I am running out of time.
