Chris's SQL Blog

SQL Server Consultant and Exceptional DBA Awards 2011 Finalist with extensive experience in the financial, health and retail sectors. I’m extremely strong in all areas of SQL Server and specialise in Security but really get my kicks from System Optimisation and Performance Tuning. Being a DBA is a thankless task at times but sadly I do enjoy it. Any spare time I have (when not playing rugby, football, cricket, in the gym or spending time with the family) I’m trying to help out others via social network sites such as the #sqlhelp hastag on Twitter (follow me @billysassage),www.sqlservercentral.com (ChrisTaylor) or by attending and contributing to the UK SQL User Groups (www.sqlserverfaq.com) held in Manchester and Leeds.

SnapManager Epic Fail – oh dear!

An ex colleague and good friend of mine has recently been having trouble with Snapmanager for SQL, anyone had similar troubles? Would be interesting to see peoples thoughts on this as i share his concerns….

Bearing in mind that this may very well be down to human (sysadmin) error and a requirement to RTFM, but their tech support neglected to mention this issue when discussed before the work was carried out! I would have thought something as big as this would be mentioned by them during that call…….

UPDATE:- From some of the responses i’ve had on #sqlhelp, this issue is actually by design and not bug. I still can’t understand why a tool that claims to do this job fully automatically but doesn’t do some of the fundamental changes required when moving a database. Thanks to @GiulianoM and @BrentO for their words of wisdom and in Brent’s case (as per usual), sarcasm :o )
