Trimming the SQL log file

If your Microsoft SQL database transaction log file is big in size and you want to truncate it then use the following methods :

Step 1:

Run This command in Query Window

backup log [DATABASE NAME] with truncate_only

(This will makes the oldest parts of the log file redundant, the size doesnt change at this point though)

Step 2:


(X is the size in megabytes that you wish to shrink the size of the log file to)

Assume you had a database called "xyz" .

You must have to know the exact location of your .MDF and .LDF files.

backup log XYZ with truncate_only

dbcc shrinkfile(XYZ_log,20)

This will create your .LDF file around 20MB.

I have check it and it works for me.

Sql Server 2005: Change schema for all tables

Sql Server 2005: Change schema for all tables

I recently needed to change the schema for all the tables in a Sql Server 2005 database.
Sql Server 2005 provides a T-SQl statement capable to change the schema for a given object called ALTER SCHEMA
You may use the following syntax to change the schema for all the tables in a database. Just change the "new_schema" string with the desired one:

exec sp_MSforeachtable "ALTER SCHEMA new_schema TRANSFER ? PRINT '? modified' "

Terminal server has exceeded maximum number of allowed connection – how to kill open sessions?

IF you are getting following error while trying to access remote your server:
Terminal server has exceeded maximum number of allowed connection.

Use following command:

mstsc /v:A.B.C.D /f -console

Where A.B.C.D is IP address of your server. I have checked it on 2003 and 2008, It Works perfectly.
