    Unanswered: learning SQL Server DBA from DB2

    Any good tips or sites or books that can help me learn SQL Server database administration quickly coming from a DB2 and Oracle DB2 background? I need to help our SQL Server DBAs out. Thanks!

    Could you be a little more specific? Are you wanting to help out on the TSQL developement side of things or on the SQL Server Administration side?

    SQL Server administration

    Mostly on the DBA database server administration side such as managing change controls, users, backups, etc. I need to also modify
    T-SQL code if the stored procedures fail during change controls. I already know Oracle and DB2 stored procedures but need to get back
    on the groove with MS SQL Server.

    I found the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Operations Guide pretty useful on the administration side (esp regarding change controls etc.)
    Can download it free from MS...

    thanks

    Will check this out. I have done some SQL Server DBA server admin stuff in the past but for the most part I've been working with DB2 UDB and Oracle databases on Unix and W2K boxes. Interesting differences
