Customer Stories From The Front Line.

Our Microsoft Support team deals with a lot of different types of customer issues, and we want to share some of the stories from these. Join this full-day pre-con to learn from some of the top customer issues and trends Microsoft Support has faced. Explore the problem, and then dive into how we fixed it!
Our toolset for these solutions will involve tools you use every day, along with some that push your limits. Did anyone say, “Debugger?” We will showcase real-world techniques that you can use to troubleshoot and resolve your top database issues, focusing primarily on the Engine, but also delving into other areas of SQL Server. And don’t forget about the demos. We will demonstrate how each issue occurred, walk through how we identified and resolved the problem, and look at new support features in SQL Server 2012 to help you going forward.
Presented by Bob Ward at SQLBits XI
