When using the Create Enterprise GeoDatabase tool, the default is a 500 MB mdf and 125 MB ldf. Is there a way to change this? I have inventoried all of our sde databases, and only 1 is larger than 500 MB and that is due to a larger number of attached images. All the rest are less than 100 MB. The problem is, once you set the mdf/ldf file size, you cannot make them smaller. You can only ever shrink them to 500/124 MB. I am trying to create a tool that will create a geodatabase, and import a template schema, but do not want that size.
I know you can create the db is SQL, then use the Enable SDE tool, but I was trying to find a way to create a tool that would leverage several other tools without having to create the db in SQL first
