SQL Server Agent
I learn things every day. One of the great things about the SQL community is the willingness to share their learning experiences and today’s episode is an example of this. I chat with Mark Wilkinson about the SQL Server Agent–some best practices and MSX–a feature I have not used in the past. MSX is a feature that allows you to keep your agent jobs in synch, but like always–there is a catch.
If you are interested in expanding your SQL Server agent horizon, this episode is for you.
