Automate your SQL Server installs and configurations using Powershell Desired State Configuration

Database administrators are being tasked with managing a large number of SQL Server instances. These instances can be built on premise, virtualized, physical, or in the cloud. With Powershell Desired State Configuration, DBAs can not only automate the installation of SQL Server, but also any specific configurations needing to be applied to each new instance. Powershell DSC provides a repeatable process to ensure all builds are done in the exact same way. We'll cover what is Powershell Desired State Configuration and how a DBA can take advantage of it. Next, we'll dive straight into a demo of the installation and configuration of two SQL Server instances from scratch

Welcome

The Virtualization Virtual Group is dedicated to better management of SQL Servers in virtual environments like Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere.  We:

  • Help the community by producing things like monthly training webcasts, a centralized list of helpful virtualization-savvy administrators, and a periodic report of what works well under virtualization and what isn't quite working yet.

  • Help virtualization vendors by getting training and configuration information out to the people who need it, and helping the vendors build a better product with our feedback.

  • Help PASS management by building assets that PASS can leverage (like a library of training content) and showing that PASS solves real DBA problems.


Call To Speakers!
