Vista Workstation Alarm: The SQL database size has fallen below the size threshold

Issue

Vista Workstation Alarm: "The SQL database size has fallen below the size threshold"

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

Vista Workstation

Cause

TAC Vista always monitors the database size of the SQL server and if the size grows bigger than the limit set in TAC Vista, there is an alarm (this is because the limitation in the free desktop version of SQL server MSDE).

If the size has been above the limit and returns below the limit again, the alarm reads "The SQL database size has fallen below the size threshold."

Resolution

Sometimes this alarm will display in the alarm list even though the size never grew above the size limit.

If there hasn't been any alarm that says that the size has grown over the limit, the alarm "The SQL database size has fallen below the size threshold" is nothing to worry about.
