Here's part 2, from a message I sent to the list sometime last year:
Go into SQL Enterprise Manager
Click on the "+" next to your SQL server name.
Right-click on Database Devices and choose New Device.
Name: EmeraldLogs (or whatever you want)
Size: ?? (mine is 35MB but 99% of the time, only about 1MB is
being used because I have the Transaction Log
"truncate on checkpoint" each night at 3:15am when the
database is backed up (diskdump))
Click on Create Now
Click on the "+" next to Databases
Double-click on Emerald
Click on Expand
Data Device: (none)
Log Device: EmeraldLogs (or whatever you named it above)
Size: (same as the value you selected above)
Click on Expand Now
Click on the Options tab.
Check "Truncate Log on Checkpoint" to keep the logs small.
Note: by doing this, you won't be able to backup the
transaction logs when doing a diskdump (backup).
I don't remember if you have to stop/restart MSSQL service or not.
This will prevent your transaction logs from causing problems with running
out of space for your data.
