    does anyone know where the "built-in" reports from sql 2005 are stored?
    Specifically I need to know where SQL stores its trace file info for the default trace!
    I am wanting to look back at backups of those to see schema changes. We reboot the servers every week and need to know what happened to a table last weeek!

    - these tracefiles can be found in the ...Log folder.
    - [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQL.***MSSQLServer
    key "DefaultLog"="D:\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Log" points to the default log location.

    Offcourse if you want a swift and clear view regarding schema changes, maybe setting up a ddltrigger is the less bumpy road.
    e.g.
    use yourdb
    go
    /****** Object: Table [dbo].[T_Audit_DDL_Log] Script Date: 01/17/2006 10:11:38 ******/
    SET ANSI_NULLS ON
    GO
    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
    GO
    CREATE TABLE [dbo].[T_Audit_DDL_Log](
    [DatabaseLogID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
    [PostTime] [datetime] NOT NULL,
    [DatabaseUser] [sysname] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL,
    [LoginUser] [sysname] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL,
    [OriginalLoginUser] [sysname] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL,
    [Event] [sysname] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL,
    [Schema] [sysname] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL,
    [Object] [sysname] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL,
    [TSQL] [nvarchar](max) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL,
    [XmlEvent] [xml] NOT NULL,
    CONSTRAINT [PK_T_Audit_DDL_Log_DatabaseLogID] PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED
    (
    [DatabaseLogID] ASC
    )WITH (IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF) ON [PRIMARY]
    ) ON [PRIMARY]

    GO

    GO
    /****** Object: DdlTrigger [ddlDatabaseTriggerLog] Script Date: 01/17/2006 10:06:28 ******/
    SET ANSI_NULLS ON
    GO
    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
    GO

    CREATE TRIGGER [ddlDatabaseTriggerLog]
    ON DATABASE
    FOR DDL_DATABASE_LEVEL_EVENTS
    AS
    BEGIN
    SET NOCOUNT ON;

    DECLARE @data XML;
    DECLARE @schema sysname;
    DECLARE @object sysname;
    DECLARE @eventType sysname;

    SET @data = EVENTDATA();
    SET @eventType = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/EventType)[1]', 'sysname');
    SET @schema = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/SchemaName)[1]', 'sysname');
    SET @object = @data.value('(/EVENT_INSTANCE/ObjectName)[1]', 'sysname')

    -- IF @object IS NOT NULL
    -- PRINT ' ' + @eventType + ' - ' + @schema + '.' + @object;
    -- ELSE
    -- PRINT ' ' + @eventType + ' - ' + @schema;

    -- IF @eventType IS NULL
    -- PRINT CONVERT(nvarchar(max), @data);

    INSERT [dbo].[T_Audit_DDL_Log]
    (
    [PostTime],
    [DatabaseUser],
    [LoginUser],
    [OriginalLoginUser],
    [Event],
    [Schema],
    [Object],
    [TSQL],
    [XmlEvent]
    )
    VALUES
    (

    Frank,

    I know at least one female Michael. And in Enid Blyton's Famous Five series, Georgina is called George.

    If you mean this famous androgynous person, I agree with you.

    ...and Timmy was the dog...

    Not sure which famous androgynous person you're referring to? My acquaintance is a fairly private person.

    Thomas,

    No... my surname is not Jackson.. You think he would know what a database was?

  21. FrankKalis Moderator

    [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-2.gif' alt=':D' />] Not sure about that. Might depend on what is stored in the db. Probably a very special sort of images might catch his interest.

    While Michael may be excused for his ignorance, I'm abhorred that Frank would ever suggest to store images in a database!
  23. FrankKalis Moderator

    Why not?
    It depends on the situation. I have 1 db at about ~12 GB storing almost nothing else but BLOBs of all sizes. I am the only one updating it. The rest of the users are simply accessing and reading. Much easier to handle in terms of consistencies in just one system (db) rather than two (db and filesystem). One backup and security permission strategy. Works like a charm.

    But this is my situation. There are others as well where it really depends on the single factor as (size of BLOBS, users, concurrency, activity...)
