A few days ago I published my second free eBook of “The SQL Server and .NET Blog” eBook Series. The title of the book is “Administering SQL Server” and it is for database administrators and architects who monitor and administer SQL Server instances on a regular basis and have as a primary goal to maintain the health of the instances and thus the hosted databases. The book discusses among other, basic administration tasks, security and compliance, integration and troubleshooting.

The book is organized in 5 chapters. Chapter 1 discusses basic SQL Server maintenance tasks such as disk usage monitoring, history cleanup, backup-related topics, and more. Chapter 2 discusses security and compliance topics such as Policy-Based Management and encryption. Chapter 3 talks about different integration topics such as linked servers, use of proxies on SQL Server Agent job steps and Unicode support. Chapter 4 discusses special SQL Server topics like the Windows Internal Database (SSEE) and dynamic T-SQL generation. Chapter 5 discusses error handling and ways to overcome errors you might encounter due to external factors like permission issues, invalid user input, etc.

Below you can find an excerpt of the book containing the table of contents:
