Hi,

Most dba's use the admin database to keep their backup,restore and maintenance scripts instead of master database. So Iwould like to create a admin database. Could you plz suggest me how this database should be created relating to sysdatabases and user databases.

Thanks

its certainly a good idea to have a database for your own use to store your code in and any data you might use as a part of your day to day maintenance activities.

create and treat it like any other user database though I would suggest the only maintenance needed on it is backups and simple recovery mode should suffice.

Include all the stored procs that you would use in the maintenance jobs and the once with notification too. Simple recovery would be enough and if you don't update it very often then a weekly backup would do.

Use this database as reference for all the jobs that you use for maintenance purpose.

Thanks!!

I agree, set it for simple

The more you are prepared, the less you need it.

But if you're doing a lot of work in the database, either go FULL with T-log backups like a Production DB, or do more frequent FULLs while the work is going on. Just like any other DB, decide how much work you can offord to lose.
