I have a 10gb ILM 2007 database, (6gb data, 4gb log) in production. The developers are telling me when then restore the database to FIM 2010
, the database grows to 10gb and the transaction log grows to 40gb.
They are trying to understand why the transaction log grows to 40gb during the restore.
The only reason I can see if if they did an index rebuild as part of their restore, it may grow the log that way.
I am also imagining this isn't strickly a database restore they are doing, but more of a data migration. I still need to talk to them on the phone.
Is there any reason during a DB restore that would cause the tLog to grow from 4gb to 40gb?
