Real-World SQL-DMO for SQL Server delves into the details of administering Microsoft SQL Server using the SQL-DMO object library.

Additionally, Mitchell and Allison offer advice about when (and when not) to use the SQL-DMO application programming interface (API).

The code in this book has been tried and tested at sites where database administrators routinely manage more than 50 SQL Servers, ensuring that the techniques can be implemented on environments of almost any scale.

Whether youre a developer or a database administrator, this book will take you to the next level in SQL Server administration.
