awesome reply alivn

from my point of view ithnk so if not please correct ----any one can suggest me------
coz inthis sort of scenarios only u will have two options
1. as mentioned by alivn
2. think for the solutions sort-out in parallel consult ur senior dba and windows team also
[1.check the error logs in sqlserver and event-viewer
2. check the disk-space issues
3.what ever the high availability it is running on first check ur sqlserver services running or not --- if not restart the services which takes min 15mins downtime.
2. restore the full backup or point in time restore (tlogbackup .trns )]

I'm not sure who you are replying to and so I'm not sure which question you're trying to answer but bouncing the server should be an almost last resort and doing a restore is the absolute last resort. Whenever you do a restore, some data is lost and you might not be able to get it back especially if you don't have the room to keep the original and the restored database active at the same time.

Alvin Ramard (4/17/2009)
Nicholas Cain (4/17/2009)
Here's my personal favourite to spring:


It's 3pm on a Friday, your production OLTP environment is down, every hour down costs the company one million dollars. People are phoning constantly, folks are rushing the hallways, running into your work area and freaking out wanting to know what you are doing, and why it's not fixed yet.
What do you do?

That separates the men from the boys (or women from the girls)


Lock the door, take the phone off the hook, and GET TO WORK!!!!


Lock the door, take the phone off the hook...

from another side of the room!
Go to the nearest pub and enjoy pint or two thinking that they cost your employer a million dollar.
Why that?
At least you will be able to tell you grandchildren that you have drunk a million-dollar beer

My initial respose to such a question would be "Obviously, the managers that are panicing in such a fashion should have been made to answer the same question correctly before THEY were hired."

Great point, Alvin. You need to appoint a "public information officer" for all inquiries.

If there's more than one DBA on the team, its proper to appoint somebody as the "spokesperson", who is not driving the troubleshooting. This prevents the person handling the incident from getting distracted with a myriad of questions. It also ensures timely, structured updates of status.

I love some of those questions. One of my favorites is...

9. I’m a manager, and you’re my Senior DBA. Explain to me why we shouldn’t switch to MySQL or Oracle.



You can switch to one of those, no problem. Give me about a month's notice when you plan to start so I can sharpen up my resume.
