You cannot restore the whole DB from t/logs. You need to have a datafile backup as well.  

Take for instance a company who takes a full backup on a Monday and differential backups on a tuesday and thursday. And t/log backups at 6pm every night

The system falls over on Wedensday Morning.

You would restoree the full backup from monday, then the differential from tuesday and then the tlog backup from Tuesday night.

Or go for the double whammy. MCSE,MCDBA take the exams like this

70-210,215,216,217,219,228,229 Bingo.

I remember how great it felt when I slew the Beast.

Bet you feel like a million bucks!!

Well done.

One upon a time in the land of Cetification, a young knight set out on a quest to capture two coveted treasure.  The MCSE and MCDBA.

His journey started when his master showed him the basics of battle , he mastered these pretty quickly and was sent into the pit to battle with "The Beast" .  The fight was long, and the enemy used many strange weapons like routers, which he used to RIP into you.  The young knight fought the beast for several months but at last he trimphed and smote the beasts ruin upon the mountainside.

The knight made for AD, a strange place where everything was connected by a single road. The people there asked unneccessarily long questions of the knight, although there were very simple answers.  The knight ran through this land very quickly and eventually found his way to the foot of the mountain where the treasures were kept.

The mountain was the home of King SeQueL and his army of FIELD Sergeants who all sat round TABLES making trouble for any travellers with their catapults which used TRIGGERS to fire rocks down the side of the mountain.

The knight soon dispatched these with his knowledge of battle.  His foes vanquished he held aloft his prize.  His journey over he returned home.

All of this of course was a load of nonesense, but I do feel like I have reached and breached a milestone in my career.

Thanks to everyone, across the forums, who have helped me achieve it.

Yours as always

May the force be with you ;-)

I take the 229 in the morning to complete my MCSE and MCDBA in one fell swoop.

Not everyone is going to take up Yukon immediately.  

It often takes companies years to migrate to a new platform, there are still some people out there using Windows 3.1 and DOS for certain things.

At least if you get the MCDBA now, you maybe only have to up your knowledge on the newer stuff.  Use the Beta Express version to get an idea of how different the architecture is going to be.

In short, "Don't jump the gun until you know the calibre of the bullet"

Hi Guys,

Picture a piece of swiss cheese, and you'll know how my brain looks at the moment.

I'm working through the lessons on the 229 MSPress book and have created my DFD and Normalised Table Forms.  I trying to figure out whether or not I have the right data types for the fields before I go creating PK's and FK's and constraints on the tables.

Does anyone know where I can check for this info.

I dont really want to move on til I know I've got it right.

It's now time to take the 229 and complete the double whammy

Thanks to everyone who helped out on this one.

Get a copy of Transimulator and practice practice practice.

Good Luck

I've done 5 MCSE exams in the last year and havent come across a single adaptive.

Do the practice tests thinking that you might get it anyway.  Transcender lets you split the exams up into it's component objectives so you can concentrate on the topics which you are weakest on.

Good Luck

I will be the first to admit that my development skills are weaker than my Network/Engineering Skills, but I have a decent grasp of RDB's too (I think) LOL.  It might not be too bad, and after all, I have my holy grail to keep me going : "The Double Whammy Awaits" Wink

Thanks Necro

I'm going in on the 7th of June for 228.  

Having read the last few posts though, I'm now worried about taking the 229. Is it really that bad?

I have some background in Access and FoxPro databases already.... should I rethink?

Thanks Guru,

I'm off to book the exam in a couple of weeks, and kill the plastic off buying transcender LOL

I have Sybex and MSPress, and am starting to get bogged down with Backup/Restore, mainly because I am not really getting to grips with the theory behind the transaction log and VLF's , checkpoints and so on.

Does anyone know of any decent "plain english" explanations for these topics?


15  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-219 / What should I expect on this exam? on: April 02, 2004, 05:26:42 AM
I know that this will sound corny.

Expect the unexpected.

The test will examine whether or not you are capable of looking at a situation , extracting the appropriate information out, and applying the Technical stuff to that information.

The exam is part business analysis, part technical.

Make sure that you understand the "buzz words"

The buzz words, are all contained in the W2K Deployment guide, chapters 9 and 10.

The case studies can be long and deliberately cumbersome.  Dont let that get to you.  Sometimes it's easier to read the ALL tab, then read the questions and go back to the beginning and read the case again before answering the question.

Good Luck
