"Always in the sh-t, it's just the depth that varies"


Sorry to be pedantic, but shouldn't the comma come after "sumus"?

John


:D

Actually, no. Sumus = are (or in this case, it's), so belongs after the comma. That said, you could redirect the "corrective spirit" towards the word "solem", and you'd be right, since I've realised it should be spelt "solum" (alone). I'll correct it later....

Good article about the tasks a DBA needs to do. I have a couple add-ons:

* is DR in place? recovery plan/document/script ready?
* restore verified?
* review user access
* what services are running? auto-start?
* DB auto-grow? reasonable growth rate?
* any auditor requirement?
* SLA
* maintenance window
* any other application other than sql server running on the server?
* peak time

Should have more. Leave to the others to fill it up.

Thanks to all of you for the constructive feedback. Several valuable additional items were mentioned that should most definitely be added to any new DBAs checklist of things to do when first starting a new post especially verifying your existing backups, etc. as mentioned by majorbloodnock.

Best wishes and good luck to all the new DBAs out there...

Daryl.
