This past weekend I had a blast at SQL Saturday #61 in Reston, VA. I gave a brand new topic on “Monitoring your SQL Server farm with Policy-Based Management and Central Management Server.” I showed everyone how I run my daily checklist. In fact, its usually done in the amount of time it takes me get a cup of coffee.
Slides and code
My slide deck, Intro to PBM and CMS is available for you to download. The zip file also includes two scripts I run against our Central Management Server while I get coffee.
