Next Meeting

Date Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speakers: Chris Anderson and Glenn Burnett

Topic: Lightning Talks: Partially Contained Databases; Configuring a Test Environment

"Partially Contained Databases" - Chris Anderson.  Partially contained databases - a feature of SQL Server 2012 and later - ease an issue with migration or restoration of databases to another server.  In an uncontained database, logins exist on the server, ratehr than a particular database.  Extra steps are required to identify and move the logins required to that database.  Partially contained databases allow a contained user with authentication stored within the database itself.

"Configuring a Test Environment" - Glenn Burnett.  Configure a SQL Server test environment using no-cost virtualization and preview Windows and SQL Server software.


Randstad. Free food and raffle!

The Sacramento SQL Server User Group meets the first Wednesday of every month. Most sessions will have a presentation; however, throughout the year we schedule a few group sessions designed to provide a forum that allows attendees to discuss real-world SQL Server related questions, issues and concerns which are addressed as a group.

We start each meeting with some time to network and get situated. Unless otherwise noted, the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM: Mingle/networking, get food & beverages, presentation setup
6:15 PM - 6:30 PM: Group announcements, agenda, introduce speaker
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM: Presentation
7:30 PM - 8:00 PM: Post-meeting discussions
