Shutdown SQL Server Via T-SQL – SQL in Sixty Seconds #163

Shutdown SQL Server Via T-SQL - SQL in Sixty Seconds #163 163-Shutdown-yt-800x450 I often see DBAs and Developers using Windows Services App to start or stop the services for applications which totally makes sense. However, I often see the command SHUTDOWN underutilized when it is about turning SQL Server services gracefully. I strongly suggest that people learn and explore this command because in certain scenarios it can come very handy.

In today’s video, we are going to learn about how we can shutdown SQL Server via T-SQL.

However, make sure that you do not use this command on your SQL Server production server accidentally otherwise you will be in trouble if your production system goes down.

Let me know if you are interested to know more about this topic. I will write more blogs as well as create an SQL in Sixty Seconds video.

Here are my few recent videos and I would like to know what is your feedback about them.
