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,

~sve

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