Point #2, Enable Successful and Failed logs ...
I understand having that on for the first little while in a new system to make sure you know who is hitting the system. But by enabling both Successfull and Failed will it not fill up the error log alot quicker. Like for example on some of my serers there are over 3000 successful connections/day. I track successful for a while when setting up new server to make sure things are funcitonal; then I switch to Failed log ons only.
Recommendations are both or just failed? Comments?
Point #7, Create a maintenance database ...
I just starting doing that recently on SQL Server 2000 environment because we needed to track access to the user/database login. And be able to report it out quickly. I am also using this for storing some Stored procedure for selective reindexing? What else can be in this database?
Thanks for the Article, really good pointers
I will be reading the articles you posted today they look really good
