Microsoft RAP, Not Just Clever Lyrics

We scheduled a Microsoft RAP, or Risk and Health Assessment Program, with our Premier Support representative to occur this week.  This is an excellent program where a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer comes on site and assesses the risk and health of your SQL servers.  We installed some new hardware and began a migration process moving from 2005 to 2008R2, so we thought this would be an excellent opportunity to assess our new environment as well to look at our best practices.  Additionally, one of my goals for the assessment has been to put some weight behind my best practice ideas as well as some weight in order to change some practices by our developers.  This is also an excellent opportunity for some of junior staff members to talk one on one with the field engineer to discuss some issues we have been working through as well as some of our pain points.

I will blog next week about some of our more interesting findings.  Enjoy!
