Professional Experience

I started my blog in the will of sharing and enhancing my acquired knowledge over the past 8 years since I am working with SQL Servers as a Database Administrator. This blog  is designed for DBAs or technically interested people in SQL administration work. Here you will find a little portion of the problems/daily work/solutions which I hope you will find usefull and interesting. I am licensed in Information Systems and have been working with SQL 2000-2012 editions with various versions on different OS configurations. Also I had experience with SQL 2005 and 2008 clusters: managing, configuring and troubleshooting (a lot of troubleshooting). I worked closely for several years with an alternative solution to clustering: Mirroring in SQL Server 2008.

In the will of widening my databases knowledge and because I love challenges, I started in 2015 to work closely with MySQL databases and MongoDB inside Vendio(Opensky) company. I am very interested in discovering performance and tuning techniques, database and server configuration leaks, discover disaster recovery options, analyze indexes fragmentation, check blocking and deadlock situations.

  5. Hi,
    please let me know how to check the updates in master databases.

  6. I am not sure i follow what you are saying. master db should NOT be modified on a daily basis and for some SQL versions is restricted.

  7. Hi

    I have a scenario where my database has 3 filegroups. I decided to move one filegroup to some other location. I am able to achieve this. But I am able to see other filegroup objects though they are not accessible. How to eliminate other objects being listed in SSMS.

    The steps I followed is
    I took the full backup of the existing database and also the filegroup backup which I wanted to move.

    I restored the full backup with PARTIAL, NORECOVERY and MOVE.
    Then I restored the Filegroup backup PARTIAL & NORECOVERY
    Then the tlog with RECOVERY.

    The database is up but the problem is the other filegroup objects. Any thoughts is highly appreciated.

  8. Hi I just found your page about updating Sql2 on Xp to a new computer. I run a home based business on it and need to to get this done before Xp machine is dead. Could this be done remotely, do you know someone who would do it. Thank you Joyce
