Title: Linux for SQL Server Professionals (Ubuntu specific)
by: Jay Falck

Summary:

SQL Server is available for Linux. What does this mean for you, the Windows SQL Server Professional? If you just develop code for SQL Server, there’s really nothing different. However, if you’re a DBA, you’ll need to be familiar with the differences between Windows and Linux. This includes using the command line instead of a nice GUI for file manipulation, setting up users, basic security, and what tools are available for performance monitoring.

Things we will cover:

  • Basic command equivalents between DOS and Linux
  • Overview of the BASH shell
  • Location of log files, database and transaction log files
  • Task scheduling using cron
  • Backup and restore
  • Applying updates
  • User and group setup and related security
  • Accessing files on a Windows systems
  • PowerShell for Linux

The following are some things we will not cover but references will be provided:

  • Installing SQL Server in Linux
  • High Availability/Always On
  • SQL Agent

Speaker: Jay Falck:
Bio: I started as a night shift computer operator out of high school. I moved to applications development after graduation from SAC. After a few years with the State as an applications developer, the manager of Systems Programming decided it would be better to have me on the inside looking out rather than on the outside trying to get in. I spent the next 14 years as a mainframe system programmer for two state agencies. In 1996 I moved to Healthcare IT and have been that ever since. I've spent most of the past 14 years doing ETL, performance and HIPAA security. In these various jobs, I've used all manner of databases including InfoTec IMP, IBM VSAM and DB2, Interbase, Informix, Universe, Oracle 9i and SQL Server from 6.0 to 2008 R2.
