When using dbeng12.exe, we can specify -f option to force dababase to start without transaction log; when using .net SAConnection, what is the parameter in the connection string that is corresponding to -f ?

You realize that the -f option will not launch any listeners and you cannot build a database connection to an engine launched with -f, right? It will start, load the database, do what it can, then shut down again.

Thanks, Erik. That makes sense.

FWIW, the same is true for the other recovery options, i.e. those that include applying the transaction log(s) and then shutting down the database (-a, -ad, -ar), though the behaviour of -ad and -ar can be enhanced with option -as to keep the database running after the successful application of the transaction log(s).

To pass options to the server that you are starting, use the DatabaseSwitches (DBS) connection parameter.
