Next Meeting




Inaugural meeting to kick start Dayton SQL PASS local group

  • In-Person @ Courtyard Marriott Springfield, Ohio, United States (map)
  • 18:00 - 20:00 Eastern Daylight Time
  • Language: English

This inaugural meeting of the Dayton local PASS group will be somewhat informal and will have some initial planning and introductions.

Our topic of the evening will be Central Management Servers.

Dinner will be available for a modest price at the hotel restaurant called Mela Urban Bistro.  Our conference room sponsor has graciously allowed us to use the meeting facility at a greatly reduced rate and in return we will be encouraging attendees to buy food from the hotel grill.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Dan Sullivan, local group leader

Featured Presentation:

Using Central Management Server to Audit Backup and Security Compliance Standards

Dan Sullivan, SQL Server Database Administrator Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions

Our first meeting will be mostly a meet and greet to kick start the exciting new PASS community in Dayton with introductions. We will then dive into the CMS feature and learn how to manage multiple SQL instances at once. This can be dangerous as well as powerfully efficient depending on usage. I will demonstrate how I can audit for last backup time on over 1,500 databases across more than 100 instances. It's nothing brand new in Management Studio but people often forget about this powerful tool. We will keep it fairly simple the first meeting to keep time available for introductions. Dinner will be available at the Hotel Restaurant if you prefer and is highly encouraged as that is how we will be paying for our meeting room time so please stop by the Mela Urban Bistro in the hotel lobby and support our sponsor for their generosity to allow us use of the meeting facilities.

About Dan:
I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2003 with a Bachelors of Applied Science in Information Technology. I have worked within the SQL data platform since SQL 7.0 and have served as the Database Administrator for Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions since 2008. I manage more than 100 instances of SQL for manufacturing with over 1,500 databases on 4 continents. I work in a very fast paced manufacturing world where downtime equals lost money and plant full worth of people going home if anything breaks. With the pressure on I thrive and enjoy the challenge. One of my proudest accomplishments has been the delivery of a 98.9% uptime statistic since 2008.
