I am currently taking a 5-day training course at the Nexient Learning Centre in Vancouver and today was the first class. It is about administering and maintaining MS SQL Server 2005 databases in the infrastructure. Key topics that will be covered include installing/configuring SQL Server 2005; managing databases/files; disaster recovery; managing security; monitoring SQL server; transferring data; automating administrative tasks; implementing replication; and maintaining high availability.
So far, it’s going well. I hope to learn everything there is about MS SQL Server 2005 for the duration of this 5-day course.
