Pretty much all of our databases on certain servers do not require the Full Recovery model (we don't do transaction log backups) and the default should always be to create databases and specify the Simple Recovery model.
Quite often and for certain practical reasons many databases are created using SSMS. However mistakes can be made and the operator can forget to specify the Simple Recovery model. This leads to a "suprise" a few days later when the box is struggling with disk space due to three or four 60GB log files that have never been truncated.
I can make the Simple Recovery model the default setting for new databases by configuring the recovery model on the
model database. However, is this recommended, if I do this could it come back and bite me in any way in the future?
