This evening I'll be presenting a brand new session on installing and managing SQL Server 2012 with PowerShell. Here's the abstract:
Windows Server 2008 introduced Server Core, the operating system without the Graphical User Interface. SQL Server 2012 is the first version of SQL Server to support Server Core. To gain the maximum efficiency from your servers you want to make use of Server Core and with PowerShell you can effectively manage SQL Server in that environment. This session will demonstrate how to manage SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server Core and provide scripts to help you perform the common tasks you need to perform on that platform.
Please join us at the Triangle SQL Server User Group meeting in Raleigh, NC for this first look at making your servers more efficient.
I look forward to seeing you there.
