It has been a great week at PASS Summit 2016. Tomorrow I will be presenting on Database Corruption. The session is called “When Database Corruption Strikes.” This session is at 3:30pm in Room 2AB, if you are interested in how to deal with database corruption, please come and see this presentation.
Here is the session abstract:
Your database is running fine month after month with no problems. 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 three 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 can do to protect yourself when corruption strikes. Learn how to avoid making things worse, and how to protect your data if things do get worse. You will leave with a checklist of steps to use when you encounter corruption. By the end of this session you will be ready to take on corruption, one database at a time.
I look forward to seeing you there. If you happen to see me any other time at PASS Summit, please come up and say Hi.
