We recently upgraded our SQL 2000 datbases to SQL 2005. In researching 2005, I came across KB 958004 which addresses a filesize growth issue. The essence is that a file set to grow in MB will actually grow by a massive (640, 1280...) percent. I saw that it was part of Service Pack 2, so I, being a newbie to Microsoft hotfixes, thought it would be handled in SP3 which we installed. Of course, the fix was in an update to SP2 after SP3.
The problem was addressed in SP3 Cumulative Package 1. I have installed SP3 Cumulative Package 7 expecting it to solve the problem. It did not. I performed the recommended steps after applying the fix with no luck. I uninstalled and reinstalled the cum package and it still does not work.
I know we could just use % growth settings, but I would prefer to have it fixed so we don't have to remember that issue when adding new files.
Has anyone else had a problem solving this filesize issue?
Do you have any recommendations on what my next steps are?
I am new to both EE (as a poster) and Microsoft hotfixes, so please ask for clarification as needed.
Thanks for the help,
