FIX: An object that you renamed by using the Rename refactoring feature is not changed when you deploy a database project to a target database in Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition

Consider the following scenario in Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition:
  • You use the Rename refactoring feature to rename a schema object in a database project. For example, you rename a column.
  • You use a user account to deploy the database project to a target database. The default schema type of the user account differs from "dbo".
In this scenario, the object name is not changed in the database, even if the .refactorlog file is generated and the file includes the new name of the schema object. Additionally, another table is generated in the database.
This problem occurs because the dbo schema is not specified for the _RefactorLog entry in the deployment script.
