Read an Excerpt

This book is written for the technical professional. It's a mix of a little theory and a lot of practical hands-on examples and real-world explanations.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part (Chapters 1-10) deals with the day-to-day things you need to know as a database administrator (DBA).

  • Chapter 1 explains how to use the book. It introduces databases in general and SQL Server in particular. This chapter also explains what a DBA does, and details the various versions of SQL Server 2000.
  • Chapter 2 displays an install of SQL Server 2000 as well as an overview of upgrading a SQL Server 7 or 6.5 database server to SQL Server 2000.
  • Chapter 3 familiarizes you with the tools available for SQL Server 2000. This chapter also shows the tools' changes from earlier versions.
  • Chapter 4 introduces you to methods of accessing data, both from internal SQL Server 2000 tools and by using other programs. This chapter also covers the connection methods for SQL Server 2000.
  • Chapter 5 explains the methods used to import and export data for SQL Server 2000, and how to automate data transfer from existing sources, such as text files or other databases, to another destination.
  • Chapter 6 introduces you to automating SQL and other tasks such as operating system commands to full-scale programming with conditional branching.
  • Chapter 7 focuses on the maintenance of your databases. This is the most important chapter in the book.
  • Chapter 8 explains backing up and restoring SQL Server 2000 databases to disk or tape as well as the recovery models SQL Server uses for its databases and how they affect backups and restoration.
  • Chapter 9 shows how to tune SQL 2000 Server, both with hardware and the nondesign options.
  • Chapter 10 details SQL Server 2000 security.

The second part (Chapters 11-15) contains introductions and overviews to the more advanced features in SQL Server™ 2000. I've also included a sizing exercise for your servers as well as a discussion about hardware.

  • Chapter 11 describes replication and shows a simple replication schema.
  • Chapter 12 gives a basic understanding of Microsoft's Analysis Services. Here you'll see a start-to-finish example of how OLAP cubes work, as well as the process to use Microsoft Excel as an OLAP client.
  • Chapter 13 provides an overview of the
  • Chapter 14 shows how to ask plain-English questions from SQL Server 2000 databases.
  • Chapter 15 explains named instances and how to set them up and connect to them.

The book concludes with two appendixes.

  • Appendix A gives a sample server sizing exercise.
