I will be speaking for the PASS DBA Virtual Chapter on August 24th, 2011 at 11AM CT. I will be delivering my presentation on Central Management Server and Policy Based Management.
If you have not checked out the virtual chapters that PASS has, then you need to Go Check Them Out. These chapters are designed to fill the gap for areas of the country that do not have a local user group chapter. Even if you have a local chapter in your area you need to check these out. Why? Most speakers have to pay for travel out of their own pocket and can’t visit every chapter in the country. The virtual chapters provide a platform where you can watch the presentations via Live Meeting. This means you get access to great speakers you might not otherwise get to hear, and best of all you get to do it from the comfort of your desk.
Don’t cheat yourself of amazing free training, and go check out the chapter(s) that interests you. There is a $50 Amazon gift card up for grabs if you register by 5pm ET August 23rd. You can register for my session HERE. If you just want to attend this FREE session then you can access the Live Meeting directly by going HERE. Below is the session abstract:
Manage your shop with CMS and Policy Based Management
In this presentation we talk about Central Management Server and how it can help you manage a disperse environment. We will also cover what Policy Based Management is and how you can leverage its power to better manage your environment. With PBM we’ll see what it can and cannot do to help you enforce standards in your enterprise. We will cover and demonstrate PBM for the beginner from creating and evaluating policies to receiving alerts on policy violations.
