Event Overview

In this webcast, we discuss the broad range of tools available for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2). If you are a database administrator or IT professional who is new to SQL Server 2005 or would like to see a few of the great scenarios enabled by SP2, you should attend this session. We cover several tools and features that are new or improved in SP2, including Management Studio, Best Practices Analyzer, multi-instance maintenance plans, custom reports, script generation, and the Copy Database Wizard.
