last time someone connected to a database

Hello all,

Is there a way to figure out when was the last time someone connected to
a database? SQL 2000 environment.

Thanks,
Raziq.

You would have to set up a trace with Profiler or the sp_trace_xxx routines
to track this.

Thanks Erland. But setting up a trace will only tell me when someone
logs on to a database in the future. I don't think it will tell me
whether someone logged on to a database last week.

What I am trying to do is to determine whether there are any databases
to which no one has connected to in a long time. And if that is the
case, I can try and get rid of those databases.

Thanks,
Raziq.

Correct. The information you are asking for, is not available unless
you collect it.

Be aggressive! Find the most suspicious ones, set them offline, and
see if someone screams!
