Don't try this at work !

As a DBA for hire I'm mostly thrown into the deep with dozens if not hundreds of SQL Servers and SA rights. This is usually ok, I do have some DBA skills through my years of experience and I'm not one of those cowboy developers :-) Sometimes though I get myself, and occasionally also the customer, in trouble by doing something silly. This session is not about best practices. I'll show you what can go wrong during day to day DBA stuff and how to fix it.
