BUG #: 53547 (SQLBUG_70)
When you use the Create Database Wizard in the SQL Server Enterprise Manager to create a new database, it sets the transaction log file growth size restriction to the database file growth restriction size, rather than the size specified for the log.
You can create a database outside of the Create Database Wizard as follows:
  1. Right-click the Databases folder in the Enterprise Manager and choose New Database.
  2. Click the General tab and then specify the database file information including the Restrict Filegrowth size.
  3. Click the Transaction Log tab and specify the transaction log file information including the Restrict Filegrowth size.
  4. Choose OK to create the database.
RESULT: The correct filegrowth restriction size for the transaction log will be used to create the database.
