Lab Scenario
There has been a disk failure in the I/O subsystem. The disk has been replaced but you want to check the consistency of your existing databases. You will execute DBCC CHECKDB to verify the logical and physical integrity of all databases on the Proseware instance. You have identified fragmentation in a number of tables in the MarketDev database and you are sure that performance is decreasing as the amount of fragmentation increases. You will rebuild the indexes for any of the main database tables that are heavily fragmented. You have also identified a degradation of performance in the application when proper index maintenance has not been performed. You want to ensure that there is an early detection of any consistency issues in

Lab Instructions: Performing Ongoing Database Maintenance

the MarketDev database and that the index maintenance is automatically executed on a scheduled basis. To make sure this regular maintenance occurs, you will create a Database Maintenance plan to schedule these operations on a weekly basis.

Lab: Understanding SQL Server Recovery Models


Lab Setup
For this lab, you will use the available virtual machine environment. Before you begin the lab, you must complete the following steps: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Revert the virtual machines as per the instructions in D:\6231B_Labs\Revert.txt. In the virtual machine, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, and click SQL Server Management Studio. In Connect to Server window, type Proseware in the Server name text box. In the Authentication drop-down list box, select Windows Authentication and click Connect. In the File menu, click Open, and click Project/Solution. In the Open Project window, open the project D:\6231B_Labs\6231B_05_PRJ\6231B_05_PRJ.ssmssln. In Solution Explorer, double-click the query 00-Setup.sql. When the query window opens, click Execute on the toolbar.

Exercise 1: Plan a backup strategy


Task 1: Review the business requirements
1. Review the supplied business requirements in the supporting documentation for the exercise.

Task 2: Determine an appropriate backup strategy for each database


1. There is no one correct answer. The options provided below are an example strategy that would meet the requirements. For the MarketDev database: Full Recovery Model Type of Backup Full Log Scheduled 7:00pm Daily Every 20 minutes, starting at 8:20am and continuing till 6:00pm

Notes:
Full database backup should complete in approximately 3.4 hours (20GB/100MB per minute). This means that you cannot employ only a full database backup strategy as it would not meet the RPO. The full database backup should complete by 10:24pm which is within the available time window for backups. Each log backup should complete in approximately 3.4 minutes (1GB per hour / 3 log backups per hour /100 MB per minute). This fits within the 20 minute interval and meets the RPO. Full database restore should complete in approximately 4.3 hours (20GB/80MB per minute). Log file restore should complete in approximately 2.1 hours (10 hours * 1GB per hour /80MB per minute) and meets the RTO.

Lab Answer Key: Understanding SQL Server 2008 R2 Recovery Models

For the Research database: Simple Recovery Model Type of Backup Full Scheduled 6:30pm Daily

Notes:
Recovery to last full daily database backup complies with the RPO. Daily backup should complete in approximately 2 minutes (200MB/100MB per minute). Full restore should complete in approximately 2.5 minutes and complies with RTO (200MB/80MB per minute).

Exercise 2: Configure Recovery Models


Task 1: Review and adjust the current database recovery models
1. The recovery model for the MarketDev database is Simple and should be Full. Adjust the model by the following steps: a. b. c. d. 2. In SSMS, in Object Explorer expand the Proseware server, right-click Databases and click Refresh. Expand Databases, right-click MarketDev and click Properties. In the Select a page pane, click Options. In the right hand pane, choose Full from the Recovery model drop down list and click OK.

The recovery model for the Research database is correct and doesnt need to be modified.

Challenge Exercise 3: Review recovery models and strategy (Only if time permits)
Task 1: Review the RPO and RTO requirements for the databases
1. The supporting documentation includes details of the business continuity requirements for the databases. You need to review this documentation.

Task 2: Review the existing recovery models and backup strategies


1. The supporting documentation also includes details of the backup strategy for the databases. You need to review this documentation.

Task 3: Indicate whether or not the strategy would be successful


1. For the CreditControl database a Full backup would take approximately 3.4 hours (20GB/100MB per minute). This would not satisfy the requirements for the time window as the Wednesday 6am Full backup would not complete before office hours start. For the PotentialIssue database, the 15 minute log backups would meet the RPO. A Full restore should take approximately 24 minutes ((200MB + (7 days * 24 hours) * 10MB per hour) / 80MB per minute) which meets the RTO. The Full database backup would complete in approximately 2 minutes (200MB/100MB per minute) which means that the Full database would complete in the available time window. The backup strategy for the PotentialIssue database meets the business requirements.
