SQL Server 2008 Management and Administration

February 3, 2009 at 8:50 am (SQL Server 2008) (, , , )

I just got a book in the mail from a friend, Todd Robinson, who was the technical editor. The name of the book is Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management and Administration. The book was written by Ross Mistry and Hilary Cotter. I don’t know Ross Mistry and I think I met Hilary Cotter once, although I know who he is. However, since Todd was involved, I’m pretty sure this is going to be a high-end, must read. I just started and the initial chapter’s discussion on using Windows Server 2008 sparked a few questions for my local admin team. I’m looking forward to more.

Thanks Todd.

    You might want to swing by SQL Server Central (www.sqlservercentral.com) and post that same question. You’re likely to get a lot more people helping out.

    First, check your error log to see if it shows anything. Second, run a consistency check to see what it reports (DBCC CHECKDB). After that, depending on the information you found, there are lots of different options.
