Updates with new days not showing on this recap page.
Sorry about that Garry, life, lockdown and work got in the way. I do meant to come back and finish the series off as soon as I get the time.
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.
That sounds like a good idea. I’ll add it to the list. Thank you.
