SQL Server 2000 SP3 is unable to increase its data file size by percentage in one case.
When I run a service to parser and insert a lot of data, the data file increased to 32 G. The service is always stopped. I debuged and found the space of the data file left is zero at the time. After checked the data file setting. I change it from increase by percentage to by 500 M byte. There is no issue.
