SQL SERVER DBA TIP – SQL Server Books Online

I was in the office today and we are doing some training. The DBA?s were swapping best practices. One of the senior SQL Server DBA?s made the comment, ?I use my SQL Server Books Online each and every day?.
When I heard that comment I thought it made sense to share it. So I asked the person to send me the link. Here are the links so you can have you very own copy of the SQL Server documentation.

Here is a brief description:

Download Books Online for Microsoft SQL Server 2008, the primary documentation for SQL Server 2008. Books Online includes the following types of information:

    * Setup and upgrade instructions.
    * Information about new features and backward compatibility.

    * Tutorials that guide you through common tasks.
    * Reference documentation for the graphical tools, command prompt utilities, programming languages, and application programming interfaces (APIs) that are supported by SQL Server 2008.
Now the important part, the links….
