Creating and importing data into a database using .sql files
Posted on 2013-11-13
We have created a new CRM deployment and pointed it to a new back end database that is running SQL Server 2008. We also have an existing deployment on SQL 2008 R2, which I would like to use a database off to test the new environment. The problem that I have is that the smallest database is 20GB, so when I script it out and convert it so that it is compatible with 2008 it is roughly 34GB in size, which means when I try and import it the .sql file it says there are not enough resources available. I have then exported it in several files (over 2000) and transferred them to the new server.
My question is - How do I know what order the new files should be imported in?
Any assistance would be appreciated
