Will the real DBA please standup!
Is there a forum just for DBAs? I got started in 1995 when a recruiter asked me if I wanted to be a DBA on an AS/400? Was I surprised! However, the shop that hired me did not understand what a DBA on AS/400 really did... nor did I. Well, I ended up doing security, change mgn, creating DDS for programmers, refresh environments, SQL performance, systems engineer support, HA, deserter recovery… the list goes on. Whatever no one else wanted to do or the boss wasn’t sure who should do “it” (whatever “it” was).
