What is the Bellingham SQL Server Users Group?
PASS Chapters are local user groups that meet regularly in communities around the world to share their passion and knowledge about Microsoft SQL Server and Business Intelligence. Each Chapter has its own style, leadership, and schedule to meet members’ needs. PASS Chapters are a free and easily accessible resource for learning more about SQL Server and connecting with other SQL Server professionals in your area. They are also your local connection to the PASS Community.

This months technical session will be “When Corruption Strikes”. Here are the details.
When Database Corruption Strikes
You are working along month after month with no problems in your database. Suddenly someone reports that their query won’t run. They get an error stating “SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error“, or something even scarier. Do you know what to do now? We will walk through 3 or 4 actual corrupt databases exploring ways to go about finding and fixing the corruption. More importantly we will explore how to prevent further data loss at the time corruption occurs. Learn what things you should do to protect yourself when corruption strikes. Learn what to avoid that will make things worse. You will leave with a checklist of steps to take when you encounter corruption. By the end of this session you will be ready to take on corruption, one database at a time.
The database corruption presentation is based on my experiences running the weekly SQL Server Database Corruption Challenge. The corruption challenge is a weekly event that I run to the SQL community be ready to react when they encounter database corruption.
