Hi,
I have one database called KalasamDB in my SQL Server . I want to create another database as the same as KalasamDB with another name. Therefore I have done like this, Scrict database as -Create TO - New Query Editor Window. Then I have find and replaced all the names of KalasamDB into KnowledgebaseDB. But its giving me an error.
I have also changed the path but I couldn't figure out the problem here.

Can anyone help me plzz?

I would make a backup to file, rename the existing database and restore the backupfile, maybe have a look on the option to change the SQL-filenames.
quick and easy - if you have access to the server, of course...

I'm assuming you don't want the data copied, which is why you've scripted it so the chances are it's trying to save the MDF and LDF files over the existing KALASMDB files (because they're not called KALASAMDB.mdf?).  I would find ".mdf" and make sure that file does not exist, also same for ".ldf".

If you're trying to do an exact copy, i.e. data too, then backup / restore is the best option as others have said here.
