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...
You will get an error, as you expected, saying that the "MAX size cannot be less than SIZE".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code: Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
