Presentation: SQL Server Restore Cookbook

“How do you restore a database that has lost a file? How do you recover from a lost transaction log? How do you get rid of corruption in the fastest time? At some point in time, these and other destructive scenarios will happen to your databases. And people will look at you and expect you to react swiftly and confidently. Come see the scenarios and demos so you’ll be prepared with the right ingredients to cook up your RESTORE recipe!”

I have the honor to be presenting my session “The Restore Cookbook” tomorrow for the PASS DBA Virtual Chapter. I previously did this session for the Spanish Chapter at the 24 hours of PASS and got great feedback to continue fine tuning it. If you’re junior or intermediate DBA this will be a good 100% practical way to get a feel on how to deal with recovery scenarios and also to create some test scenarios for your own environment as well.

The session is tomorrow so there’s still time to RSVP! Follow the link:

I will be editing this post after the session with the scripts and databases used for the demos. See you there!

UPDATE: thanks everybody for attending the session today, great feedback and questions!

I have uploaded the .ZIP file with the PPT, scripts and DB backups (SQL Server 2014). Cheers!
