The Orlando SQL user group (OPASS) meets the last Thursday of every month at Cork and Olive in Lake Mary, FL. We feature a different speaker every month covering a variety of topics. This is a free event centered around Microsoft SQL server, where everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Come join us for free learning, networking, food, and fun.

Featured Presentation:

Avoiding, Detecting, and Repairing Database Corruption

Andy Warren, President Fourdeuce Inc

This beginner level presentation will discuss how to avoid, detect, and repair database corruption - the kind of problem that can happen due to an bad shutdown due to a power outage or a bad storage drive or controller. Some of the topics we'll cover include page verify settings, backup with checksum, the right way to shutdown your instance, how to check for corruption, and the basics of repairing corruption. Corruption doesn't happen often, but knowing what to do (and what NOT to do) can save you a lot of time and energy if it does happen to one of your databases.
