"improve they're typing skills"
Not to nitpick, but that's a pretty funny clause to have a typo in.

Apparently, the first (and only) CTP of SQL 2005 SP1 has just been posted:

Is it just loading you find is slow? I've found actual interaction with database to be faster, in particular things like right clicking on a server to select connect from the context menu - in enterprise manager you would be waiting quite a few seconds beofore the context menu appeared (presumably it was interrogating the server??!?), but in SSMS the menu is there straight away. Other operations seem to be as fast or faster.

> How the hell do you show the contents of a system stored procedure?

Am I missing something? Don't you just locate it under the system stored procedures subfolder of stored procedures, and right click on it and select Modify? Bit of a misnomer if all you want to do is look at it, but it still has the same effect?

Does anyone know how to add a column to a table in a merge publication? You used to bring up the properties of the publication, go to filter columns, find the table and click the add column button, but filter columns seems to have disappeared. Can obviously do it via sp_repladdcolumn, but it would be nice to have the option to do it via the GUI as well.

Just to nitpick a bit (it was a nice article), but last I heard the systables are being depricated, as well, in favor of the system views. As such you would want to do away with the calls to sysobjects:

SELECT name FROM sysobjects
should be
SELECT name FROM sys.objects

and

Select crdate as DateCreated
From dbo.sysobjects
should be
Select create_date as DateCreated
From sys.objects

Alex, I certainly agree that SQL 2005 is a new product, and a shift in paradigm. I even agree, at the risk of being strangled by other dbas, with doing away with some of the old commands and features that arn't terribly useful. I guess what I was trying to get at is: why take away something that's useful, and not replace it with anything? Like bookmark, for example... But that's another story

John, I was talking about connecting to sql 2000, in which case sys tables are still there. U r right, in 2005 you'd want to use DMVs.

Nice article.

External tools also don't work the same in sql2k5.  Managing 100+ sql server environments, using the [SRV] parameter in enterprise manager's external tools is handy for accessing explorer, server manager & event viewers on current sql server environments.  Even though sql2005 books online says it works the same, it doesn't work in management studio.

Polling is controllable in sql 2k enterprise manager, but no control in sql2k5 management studio.  With several DBAs having management studio open with 100+ servers registered = a lot of clutter in security event logs, unneccessary network traffic & overhead on workstations.

This is easy.

Open the Registered Servers window in SSMS
Right-click on "Database Engine" and choose "Previously Registered Servers"
It will ask you some questions and pull in any SEM registered servers you have on the same computer.
