I made a simple and stupid mistake. I've created a datafile with .ldf extension? How this file being treated in sql server db?

I do not see any issues so far.  Can I just leave it like it or do I've to rename the file to .ndf?

Thanks,

Its fine.  SQL doesn't care what extension you give the file names.  You don't have to rename it, unless you want to.
