Today was my pre-con with Allan Hirt on AlwaysOn. It was great, and I learned a few things. I knew a bit about AGs, but Allan has a ton of experience, and he talked about some architectural things that I didn’t understand.
We had virtual labs, which worked flawlessly. I managed to configure AGs with GUIs, PowerShell, and a bit of T-SQL. I configured multiple AGs in the lab, and finished early, though I had one PoSh error that stumped me a bit. I’m looking forward to resetting the lab and trying again on Friday, taking a few hours to try and rebuild AGs in my own way without help.
Though I suspect I may be sending an email to Allan before this is over.
