I’m excited to announce that I’m doing my second Quest webcast coming up this Thursday (Dec 9th 8 a.m. Pacific / 11 a.m. Eastern)!!
I’ll be doing a Pain-Of-The-Week webcast with Kevin Kline and Iain Kick on some of the auditing options that are available to you in SQL Server 2008. Microsoft has come a LONG way in providing DBAs the tools needed to audit SQL Server activity so if you haven’t had a chance to investigate this on your own hopefully this webcast will give you some motivation to give them a try.
Here is the abstract and link to the POW page:
Microsoft has given DBAs many options when it comes to auditing SQL Server activity, so it’s important to understand what methodologies you have available to you. Your options vary depending on your version and edition and the type of information you’re looking to capture.
Join Kevin Kline, Iain Kick, and Colin Stasiuk as they discuss some of their experiences, how-to’s, and do’s and dont’s for some of the more common and popular auditing options, including change data capture, trigger-based auditing, and other techniques.
