Location: Stanley A. Milner library
Map: 7 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Meeting Room: Centennial Room – BASEMENT
Speaker: Colin Stasiuk
Topic: Policy Based Management… not JUST for SQL Server 2008

Session Abstract:

Policy Based Management… not JUST for SQL Server 2008

In this live session we’re going to be getting a quick overview of Policy Based Management for the people who are not familar with it but then the “guts” of the presentation will be showing how to work with Policy Based Management in previous versions of SQL Server (2000 and 2005).
The biggest misconception I’ve heard time and time again is…. “Policy Based Management sounds great but I’m still on SQL 2000 or SQL 2005”. Out of the box Policy Based Management can evaluate previous versions of SQL Server but we’re going to take that knowledge and with the use of PowerShell we’re going to expand on it and create an automated solution of evaluating and tracking not only your SQL 2008 instances but also your SQL 2000 and SQL 2005 instances.
Please be advised that this presentation may go over time as there will be alot of content covered and live demos and Q&A.
