June 2018 QSSUG – DBA Checklists: Reliable, Repeatable, & Automated

DBA Checklists: Reliable, Repeatable, & Automated

DBA Checklists: Reliable, Repeatable, & Automated

Now that SQL Server loves PowerShell and Microsoft loves open source, it is even easier to automate even your most time-consuming, repetitive, mundane or burdensome tasks.

Using the DbaChecks PowerShell module released at the SQLBits 2018 conference we can:

  • Track SQL Server instance configurations
  • Promptly provide required information to managmement, change configuration or developers
  • Deftly respond to audit change requirements across your entire estate (and impress your auditor with PowerShell)
  •  Restore SQL Servers to their correct state prior and post deployment
  • Test *everything* from configuration to permissions, SQL service account share access to sysadmins, Agent Jobs to SPNs

This session will look at how to install and use this module. With multiple examples we will look at both running the checks and viewing the data in the supplied Power BI reports.
