BOL 2000
"sp_attach_db should only be executed on databases that were previously detached from the database server using an explicit sp_detach_db operation. If more than 16 files must be specified, use CREATE DATABASE with the FOR ATTACH clause."

Is that more than 16 data files? Or is it with log files?

sp_attach_db has hardcoded 16 file limit because of the parameters. Look at the code. If you're doing more than that, someone must have modified your procedure.

Is there any risk in using sp_detach in production database? I would like to move some of my data file in different array partition to have more disk space. I'm just worried about the uncommitted transaction in my production database.

If i have a downtime schedule let say tomorrow at 8:00 am then i detach my database at 8:30 am. What will happen to the transactions? Is the sp_detach will not delete the uncomitted transcation then this will comit after sp_attach? i know the transaction is in logs, I just want to make sure that i will not do anything wrong in my data.

Thanks for the expert advice.
