31 Days of Backup and Restore with dbatools

So I’m doing another 31 days of posts, hopefully consecutive days but given current pandemics and sporadic working hours it may not be.

This is the index of all the posts, I’ll update it as each one is posted.




Please clean down your SQL Server backup history

    Very logically lay out series that helps to understand much easier. Thanks for such intelligent works Stuart.

    I must share a idea striked in my mind while I was going thru the posts. That is why not a similar series of posts on SQL Server containerization using either dbatools or powershell.

    What I mean is… spin up SQL Server on Docker using dbatools or powershell same as on VM or physical server with standard recommended configurations e.g. separate drives for data, log, tempdb and backups and other SQL level configurations, Ola Maintenance plans configurations, persistant data storage etc…

    Hope it would be good initiative to work and helps learners.
