So I was adjusting the size of a DB for a customer (increasing the size of his QA DB) and noticed something. SQL will let you set an initial size that is larger than the maximum size in Autogrowth.
So, my question, what happens if you do this? If you create a DB (or increase the initial size of a DB) so that, for example, the initial size is 10MB while the maximum size in Autogrowth is 5MB. What would SQL do? Still tell you that there's no space in the DB, or would it let you go up to the new initial size but not beyond?
Just curious, and don't have a system handy to try this out on...
