Changed SoundEx Disables Index While Upgrading to SQL 2012

, 2013-12-17

Implementation of SoundEx function is changed in SQL Server 2012, described here. For an example, the result of SOUNDEX(‘Csomorova’) in SQL Server 2012 is C561 whereas the result of it from SQL Server 2008 is C256.

It does not seem very significant to our life. But it gives you surprise when this function is used for a calculated column where the value of it is persisted in the index. The indexes containing this column will be disabled automatically after restoring an SQL Server 2008 database to SQL Server 2012. Here is the result

RESTORE DATABASE successfully processed 0 pages in 2.094 seconds (0.000 MB/sec).
Warning: The index "PK_blablaView" on "blaSchema"."blablaView" was disabled because the implementation of "soundex" have changed.
Warning: Clustered index 'PK_blaView' on view 'blaView' referencing table 'blaTable' was disabled as a result of disabling the index 'PK__blaTable'.
Warning: The index "PK__blaTable" on "blaSchema"."blaTable" was disabled because the implementation of "soundex" have changed.

The solution is to rebuild indexes after restore.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
