Question of the Day

Writing to Clones

I run this code on SQL Server 2019:

DBCC CLONEDATABASE(imdb, imdb_dev)
I then change to the cloned database, imdb_dev, and run some queries. I then run this code while testing:
INSERT dbo.Title (TitleID, Title, DateReleased) VALUES (3234, 'Maestro', '2023')
GO
What happens?
