Automating Database Maintenance with Jess Pomfret and dbatools

Published on: 2019-02-05

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.

Thanks for reading. You might also enjoy following me on Twitter.
