Hi all,

I have about 10 databases running at the same SQL Server 2000 instance. Everything works ok but I just had a look at the SQL Server error log and it really have a lot of lines like:

2007-10-02 06:38:48.35 spid72    Starting up database 'FileSend'.

When I say a LOT I really mean it..... like 1 per second or something like that!!!

Now, everything works..... even the filesend database and there are no other messages in the error log....
Should I worry or? I think i should right? ithis is not normal, but where do I start looking?

Thx a lot!

LOL Thx a lot :-)

This is about the most stupid thing I have ever seen...... MUST mention that the DB was configured by a developer and not me ;-)

well, it's not a stupid option, per se, it has it's validity.
In practice, however, I have not see this in prod servers, only in test and dev servers...
