Publisher Comments:

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Management and Administration, based on Service Pack 2, addresses the challenges database administrators regularly encounter on SQL Server 2005 by providing detailed guidance in the areas of management, administration, security, and monitoring. With coverage of the new features and functionality of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, this book is designed to be comprehensive, resulting in something for all database administrators—from simple tips to tactical solutions. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Management and Administration goes far beyond the basic installation and setup information found in many other resources. The book looks at day-to-day administration, best practices, tips, and step-by-step configurations based on real-world examples found in the industry. Unlike others, this book includes not only administration and management details on the Database Engine, but also coverage of other SQL Server 2005 components often overlooked, including Analysis Services, Reporting Services, and more.

Synopsis:

This book will provide detailed guidance on management, administration, and monitoring of SQL Server 2005. These areas remain a challenge to IT professionals who have SQL Server already deployed. Since this book assumes you will have SQL Server already installed, it will go far beyond the basic installation and setup information found in hundreds of other resources. Instead, it will focus on day-to-day administration, best practices, and industry case scenarios. In addition, the book will include the least understood yet most important details for managing, administering, and proactively monitoring SQL Server 2005. The continued popularity of Stanek's Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Administrator's Pocket Consultant, even though it is written on beta and only contains what Microsoft wants you to know, shows that there is a need for a reliable, independent, up to date quick reference. The independent yet reliable information, the years of practical experience, the focus on administration, and the easy-to-find format will make this a DBA's first choice for information.
