Teaching, testing and learning

Today, I connected to the new 64bit VPN and found an issue with ports for our SQL Servers with a few folks on the infrastructure group and tested fixes throughout the day.

I taught a developer the right way to create a backup file from a database and how to attach it.

I learned how to use SSIS to execute SQL stored procedures... but not enough to run a job via the agent, because I haven't figured out how the agent on the box doesn't have access to the SSIS package on the server. It could also be an XML error, but that seems unlikely. Regardless, my job still fails.

After work, I walked two miles while chatting with my mother, and enjoyed a glass of wine while playing GeoGuessr and solving today's mini crossword.
