Fully Automated Database Maintenance, Monitoring and Auditing.

virtualDBA Upgrade Assistant

No Comments »

If you’re and existing virtualDBA user, you already know that there are no proprietary executables or DLL files used by virtualDBA – it’s just a single database.  When we release upgrades to virtualDBA, how do you get them onto to your systems?

If you haven’t setup any custom configuration options and you don’t need to maintain any of the maintenance, monitoring or auditing history, you can simply restore the new virtualDBA database and re-run the setup procedure – that’s it!

If you want to maintain all of your settings and history, you would need to manually export all of the table data, install the new virtualDBA, then import all of your data.  This can be both time consuming and complex given the changes to the virtualDBA schema.

To make this process easier, we are currently working on a virtualDBA Upgrade Assistant that will do all of the work for you!

It’s just a series of SQL scripts packaged together into 2 separate EXE files – one export and one import.  We’ll even give you access to all of the source code so that you can modify/run the scripts manually outside of the EXE files if you wish.

We’re hoping to have this available in the next few weeks and as always, we will keep you updated as things progress.

virtualDBA v3.6.0 should be available later this week.

Ever notice how Google changes their logo on specific dates?  Our new Reporting Module overrides will now allow you to do the same!  Change your logo, fonts, colors, email distribution list, etc for any report on any day you like.  Just add an override record and virtualDBA will do the rest!

This is just one of the cool features we have added in the new version.  We will provide a complete listing of fixes/upgrades/etc. in our Version History once the product is released.

Stay tuned!
