For the first time, SQL Server 2005 provides features that can support large-scale enterprise databases. With this powerful new release, you may find yourself being called upon to perform duties that are no longer strictly "administrative," duties that have become much more complicated and difficult. With that in mind, a team of experienced Microsoft Certified Professionals provides you with the necessary information to be a more competent and successful database developer or administrator.

Beginning with a foundation that features detailed coverage of typical administrative duties, the authors proceed to explain how to build complex data transformations for data import, build distributed data solutions, and maintain the security and integrity of the database. You will be able to apply what you learn to real-world scenarios, and smoothly navigate the vastly changed landscape of SQL Server 2005 administration.

  • How to install, maintain, and manage an SQL Server 2005 installation, including high availability and security considerations
  • Various features such as the Common Language Runtime, SQL Server Integration Services, Notification Service, and the Service Broker
  • How to use the tools that are necessary to manage configuration, backups, restores, security, availability, performance, and monitoring
  • A sampling of some of the more advanced areas and complex jobs of the broadening role of a database administrator in the enterprise

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed Jan. 22 2007
By Hard Drive - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had not touched a DB box in quite a while, and I was recently handed a SQL 2005 box to manage. This book pretty much covered everything I needed. The writing style is laid back and readable, and they get right to the point, without going off on all sorts tangents. The chapter on Automating Administrative Tasks (Chapter 8) was pure gold.

Good stuff.

By J. Roach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book offers exactly what I needed. I learned how to best manage my SQL 2005 Database Server. I found the information to be accurate and well written, an excellent reference that I've used many times. I really appreciated how the authors used real world experience to relay hard to understand concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Beginnners June 19 2007
By Todd B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an awesome book for someone that is new to SQL Server and needs to learn basic administration. The authors did a really good job of explaining the fundamentals in clear simple language.

I especially enjoyed the explanation of the storage engine. It made things clear to me that I didn't understand previously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good SQL Server 2005 BEGINNER book Aug. 28 2008
By Gandalf Stormcrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is for beginners. I'm a seasoned system engineer and have worked with SQL 2005 before. However not having any formal training I decided to get a book. I don't want to be a developer so I needed something that demonstrates SQL server 2005 from the admin side. This is book is perfect for that. It explains the major features a sys admin would want to know. Anything above what this book teaches, can be found on technet or doing a google search. So in conclusion, for a sys admin wanting to know SQL Server 2005, this book will serve your purposes very well...

By Paul E. Richmond - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having taken several classes from Dan Wood I appreciate the years of practical experience these guys bring to the table. It is a very good, readable, and thorough introduction to MS SQL Server 2005. SQL 2005 is a big product with lots of intricacies. This is one of the best introductions to to it that I've read.
