sql2005 Autogrowth values keep changing ... upgraded DB from SQL 2000

We took a db from SQL 2000 to an SQL2005, the Autogrowth values keep changing .The data autogrowth value changes from 10megs to a percentage value between 3200 and 6400 and the log-file value changes from 10 percent to a percentage value between 3200 and 6400. Resulting in huge files and filling the drive.

We heard it was an issue with SQL2005 SP1, but we are running SQL2005 SP2. do you have any idea what the fix can be, we cannot change it through the gui, and if we do it through the command line, it will reset again after the sql restarts.

The database is in which recovery mode? what is the autogrowth percentage set on the database? Would need all these details to tell you a fix.

This is a known bug - the fix in SP2 did not work for many people.  You can contact Microsoft about getting a patch, or recreate your database.
