I want to make sure whenever a new database was created it will be stored in a directory I had specified… I thought the way to accomplish this task was to change where the mdf and the ldf files were stored on the Model database. By changing where the Model database stores its mdf and ldf file did not automatically stored the new database files to that directory. Does anyone know how to accomplish this task?
Right-click the server name in object explorer of SSMS, select properties, Database Settings tab and change default locations. If I am not mistaken, you will need to restart the server for the changes to take effect.
Thanks Sunitabeck, changing the default location in the database setting accomplished the task. But restarting the server nor the services is not required for the changes to take effect. Thanks once again.
