Automating Database Maintenance with Jess Pomfret and dbatools

Watch this week's video on YouTube

dbatools is one of the coolest community projects I've seen - it is amazing how many commands are available to help make managing your SQL Server instances a breeze.

This week I had the opportunity to learn how to use dbatools to automate backups, change recovery models, and discover additional dbatools commands from dbatools contributor Jess Pomfret .

The video above goes over the basics, but be sure to check out Jess's companion blog post to learn more about these commands .

And once you start using dbatools and have ideas for adding more functionality, check out a previous video I did with Drew Furgiuele to learn about contributing to the community project yourself.
