Blog, Job, Scripts
Day one at the new job was a bit slow but I guess that is to be expected. Had to do a lot of paperwork and then get situated at my new desk, log into my new machine and start to figure out the new environment. While I was doing that I found my own blog very useful. I downloaded some of my own scripts from here to use at the new job. One was my SQL Server Health Check and another was my Register Servers. I was able to use these to check out all the instances that they have and see what type of shape they were in for the most part. Then I registered all the servers so that I could dig in a bit deeper by running some queries against multiple instances. Overall I would say it was a good first day but a bit slow as I am sure the next week or two will be as well. I am excited for this new opportunity but it was so strange being at a new desk after so long at my old one.
