  • John Heimiller on Do You Need A Log Recovery Tool?:
    (Nice to see a fairly recent blog I can post too. I feel weird when I want to post to a blog or forum thats 5 years old….is that person still alive?, etc…)
    I came to the same place with respect to the log mining choices and apex….server side components dissuaded me. I never bothered to check them out. Did you ever figure it out? If its just some Master procs, ok…but my instances are mostly on clusters and don’t want any type of exe’s or stuff on the nodes.
    Thumbs up on your post.
  • realsqlguy on Do You Need A Log Recovery Tool?:
    They actually have a document that describes what they’re installing:
    http://knowledgebase.apexsql.com/2009/06/apexsql-log-pre-installation.htmIt’s a combination of DLL’s and extended stored procedures, necessary to allow them to read from an active transaction log. Windows won’t allow remote “shared” file handles. The only way to duplicate a file handle is through a locally installed DLL.

None, the past holds no lessons this week

My real name is Tracy McKibben. I’ve been working with database products for over 20 years, starting with FoxBase running on Xenix. Over the years, I’ve worked with all flavors of FoxPro, some Clipper and dBase, and starting somewhere around 1995, SQL Server. I’ve even dabbled with Oracle, though I’ve tried to block out all memories of that experience. At present, I’m the Senior SQL Server DBA and the DBA Team Supervisor for Pearson VUE.
