This article explains why the OnePoint database should not be configured for automatic file growth.
During automatic file growth, all database operations are suspended. A database operation that needs uninterrupted access to the database (for example, insertion or a maintenance job) may attempt to write to the database during automatic file growth, but the attempt does not succeed. This condition can cause the database to keep Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) from functioning properly.
Database size should be determined through proper capacity planning.
If you have already configured your OnePoint database for automatic file growth, contact Technical Support for more information about how to disable this function.
For information about how to manually expand the OnePoint database, refer to the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
