Recently I got called in by a regular customer for my On Demand (50 minutes) service. Every single day I keep two hours available to help DBAs who need urgent help with SQL Server. When I connected with a customer, I was expecting to solve their SQL Server performance tuning problem. However, I quickly realized that the issue was not SQL Server Performance but was rather with SQL Server 2017 installation. Let us see how we can fix the error users are receiving related to VS Shell.
It has been a while since I stopped writing about Service Packs announcements, I believe those who needs to always keep track of this and do not need to know via a separate blog post. With that said, I personally do not believe in any such kind of restrictions at all. I believe we should do what we believe will help others. For the same reason, we are reading a blog post about SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 4 Released.
It has been quite a long time since I stopped posting about various SQL downloads available on the interest. The reason was that many users were not interested in learning about it. However the latest release of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), requires a mention about it. The latest version contains Performance Dashboard by default.
I have blogged before regarding how to Identify Application vs Network Performance Issues using SQL Server Dynamic Management Views (DMV).
The title of the blog is little weird, but it was a question asked to me by a developer. Have you ever got such error messages which are strange yet difficult to comprehend? He told me that he has installed SQL Server 2016 developer edition from MSDN (which is free now): Download SQL SERVER 2016 Developer Edition for FREE
Just a few minutes ago SQL Server 2016 is released. You can download SQL Server 2016 64-bit version Developer Edition for FREE.
