You also might mention that getting the wrong result fast is usually not acceptable to users. Most users would rather have the correct results, even if it does take slightly longer.

Recently, my applications architect decided that we needed to change the level of the database Isolation from the the default READ COMMITTED to SNAPSHOT ISOLATION (basically Read Committed with Snapshot Isolation) saying that it use to be in place, and that over the course of time (and multiple server leases coming to an end and being moved to newer systems) that it had been set back to the default

This is controlled by a SET option in the database and is therefore transfered with the database. If it's switched off then someone issued a

ALTER DATABASE mydb SET ALLOW_SNAPSHOT_ISOLATION OFF

Perry - thank you for confirming this. I knew it was a DBCC command that needed to be issued. The problem is that we have no idea when it happened, and doubtful that they are going to go back in the logs to try and find out when it happened. The DA said he had it put in place over 3 years ago, so...

It's not a DBCC command. Just the ALTER DATABASE that Perry listed.

To ensure in the future that the option persists you could use policy management to create a new policy enforcing the snapshot isolation state. You'll need to select the Database facet and check for the @SnapshotIsolationState for snapshot isolation or @IsReadCommittedSnapshotOn for read committed snapshot isolation

That is a project I was planning to define once we get out of our 'code freeze' period that the company is in right now. That won't be until Jan.2013, but this gives me an idea on some things I was already working on. Again - thank you both for your tremendous response and support!

Doesn't stop you creating the policies in your dev system, they'll be ready to deploy in Jan then ;-)
