    Yes it is true. SOX is a real bummer and causes more head aches every time you look at it. I do not work for this company nor have I used the software they sell but the SOX issues may be worth it for you.

    stupid auditors strike again

    one of the recommendations they told us to implement is to require MS DTC for everything. changed it on a few servers on Friday and now replication snapshots don't work. researched it and MS says not to do this and to use linked servers going forward.

    sounds like you auditors and IT directors are idiots. However, I would follow this to the letter and when a system goes down or a back up fails you need to tell him/her that you are working to his constraints and that this can only be fixed as quick as you can get a new key. The only people that should be band from making changed to production are developers.
