I decided to take some times in this cold February’s month to continue this small series. This time, I’m going to speak about Reporting Services (SSRS) and these new features.
Like my other article “SQL Server 2012: New features on Integration Services (SSIS)“, this article presents a summary from new features and enhancements for SQL 2012 Reporting Services.
Since the third CTP version of SQL Server 2012 codename Denali, you have some features available to provide an additional value for Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 like the other SQL Server versions. This Feature Pack or Manageability Tool Kit are available but are not the final version. I have compiled all information in this blog to find it easily.
All DBA should know that Feature Pack exists, how to find it and of course use it.
Dynamic management views (DMVs) return server state information that can be used to monitor the health of a server instance, diagnose problems and tune performance.
Since few months, I test the future new version SQL Server 2012 codename Denali and I was very surprised form the news DMVs from this version.
I will just explain some DMVs very interesting for a DBA.
My article is based on msdn web site reference and you find in the end from each chapter a msdn reference for more details of the DMV.
During our test to create a failover clustering with the new function ‘AlwaysOn High Availability’, we had a few difficulties to overcome like the restoring of databases of the secondary cluster node.
In this article, we will just explain you how to avoid it before you encounter the problem.
