BUG #: 55507 (SQLBUG_70)
When a SQL Distributed Management Object (DMO) program executes a statement like this:
DBFile.Shrink -1, SQLDMO.SQLDMOShrink_EmptyFile
LogFile.Shrink -1, SQLDMO.SQLDMOShrink_EmptyFile
The following error message occurs:
[SQL Server] Parameter 3 is incorrect for this DBCC statement.
The DBCC ShrinkFile statement generated by SQL DMO contains both the size and EMPTYFILE option even though there is no need to specify the second parameter (size) with the EMPTYFILE option.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
