    Every so often, a question shows up on the forums in the form of, “How do I prevent anyone from accessing my database schema, including local administrators and sysadmins in SQL Server?”  I usually laugh a little shake my head when I read a question like this because it demonstrates an complete lack of understanding of the power an ...

  • Some thoughts on interviewing….

    At the beginning of the year I changed jobs, leaving a very stable position where I had the opportunity to learn under an amazing mentor (who happened to be a Oracle DBA and not a SQL DBA), to take on a job that I felt was much more challenging and had better potential for personal as well as professional growth.  I wasn’t necessarily looking ...

  • Have you got air in your spare tire? (Have you checked your DR/HA plans?)

    This morning I was late to work because as I backed out of the driveway I noticed that my wife's car had a flat tire.  This should be a pretty simple thing to fix, but it turns out that the spare tire was also flat.  This too should have been an easy fix because I have a 60 gallon air compressor standing in the corner of my garage that ...

  • Another use for the Default Trace: Mapping Temporary Tables to Sessions

    Here’s another use for the information captured by the default trace.  Ever wonder what session created the tables that exist in tempdb?  Well you can find it using the default trace and the sys.objects view in tempdb.  Any time an object is created in a database, EventClass 46 (Object:Created) is captured in the trace output of the ...
