Hello,

We have a legacy application server which connects to a sql database.  We plan to decommission this database but have trouble to identify the server which runs the application.  

Is there a way I can search from the database to identify which system connects to the database?

Thanks

Use SQL Server Profiler, or sp_who2 and check the column hostname for the details.

Or you could simply use SQL 2005 SSMS "Activity Monitor" under Management to do that:
