SQL 2005 SP2 templog is set to restricted and will not go back to unrestricted

It is only a presentation issue.

There's no such thing as "unlimited" in the end, since the max theoretical size
• for a data file is 32TB and
• for a log file is 2TB. 2,097,152 MB = 2 TB.
I.e., the value you see is the maximum theoretical size.

Although file size is displaying as "restricted", the MAXSIZE is indeed 2TB (2,097,152MB).
So, within the confines of capacity limitations, it is unlimited so to speak.
