Database Change Management: An Automated Approach

SQL Server change management is tough. The tools don't integrate with version control systems, there isn't good administrative controls to enforce control, and often you need to buy a third party tool to make this work. New Author Darren Fuller takes a look at the various ways in which you can implement version control in SQL Server. This is part one of a four part series on version control in SQL Server.

However, we also use this instance for QA and already have a database named Finance. How do I configure the AG to use a different database as the secondary?
