  • Connect Digest : 2011-08-08

    This week I reported a few bugs - one with sp_helptext, one with Activity Monitor in Management Studio, and one in the new sys.dm_server_services DMV.#683234 : sp_helptext treats non-system objects as system objects For this one there is at least one weird case where running sp_helptext against on object prefixed with dbo ignores the dbo and tries ...

  • SQL Server v.Next (Denali) : Getting Ctrl+R to work again

    Ctrl+R is a good friend of mine - we go way back. It is very handy to use this command not only to hide the results pane away and focus on the query at hand, but to also be able to bring the results back just as quickly - without having to run the query again, or mess with click + drag nonsense. In Denali, we get a new version of SSMS, tightly ...

  • Thoughts on Nexus in SQL Server PDW

    I have been on a SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (aka PDW) training course this week and was interested to learn that you can't (yet) use SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) against PDW, instead they ship a 3rd party tool called Nexus Chameleon. This was a bit of a disappointment at the beginning of the week (I'd prefer parity across SQL Server ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-05-23

    Next week I'll be up in Alaska for SQL Cruise, so I'll be skipping at least one digest. This week I gathered a few engine-related issues, two involving what the engine does while an index is being created. The most important one, though, at least IMHO, is the first one listed, involving a hashing algorithm fix that is in SQL Server 2008 R2 - but ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-05-16

    This week we're going to take a look at issues with filtered indexes. This feature was a very welcome addition in SQL Server 2008 and has enjoyed widespread usage if conversations on twitter and forums are any indication. But their implementation is not perfect - bugs in SSMS and numerous restrictions on their use have certainly reduced their ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-04-11

    This week I decided to focus on some of the long-outstanding issues with IntelliSense in Management Studio. While I know many of you are using 3rd party tools like RedGate's SQL Prompt, not everybody has that luxury - in my case, I can't justify a license for every single server I touch, since I can't connect to every environment using SSMS ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-03-26

    This week I have collected five important bugs involving Management Studio, and I hope you'll visit them, provide input and vote on the ones you think are worthwhile. #651176 : SSMS tries to access disconnected network drives when in the Save File As wizardPaul Randal (blog | twitter) filed this issue when he experienced significant delays trying ...

  • Connect Digest : 2011-03-12

    Background Last year, I came to a very tough decision that I would cease publicizing Connect items in an attempt to drive up votes and get important issues fixed. This was almost entirely due to a couple of MVPs criticizing me for raising awareness of certain Connect items instead of letting them be found ''naturally.'' I wasn't sure what world ...

  • SQL Sentry Plan Explorer : Version 1.1!

    Last week, Microsoft offered up an early Christmas present: SQL Server 2005 SP4.  This week, it's SQL Sentry's turn to play Santa Claus: several new features and fixes have been packaged up into SQL Sentry Plan Explorer 1.1 (build 6.0.67.0). So, what's new?  Several wish list items have been fulfilled (hey, it is Christmas, after ...

  • SQL Server v.Next (Denali) : More on contained databases and "contained users"

    One of the reasons for contained databases (see my previous post) is to allow for a more seamless transition when moving a database from one server to another.  One of the biggest complications in doing so is making sure that all of the logins are in place on the new server.  Contained databases help solve this issue by creating a new ...
