SQL Server Q&A Round Table

This month, in lieu of a presentation, we'll be having a round table discussion on any topics of interest to the group.  Bring your questions and discussion topics.

Proposed ideas for discussion:

• Which features of SQL Server do you use?  Which do you want to start using?

• Have a particularly troublesome problem you've been working on?

• Have you been planning a new feature or server deployment?

• Are you a developer looking to learn more about working with SQL Server?

• Are you a new DBA looking to dive deeper?

• What are your upgrade plans?  2012?  2014?

    Thanks for the tips. I learned a lot. I added NOLOCK on some of my report queries and I don't get deadlock victims any more. I switched around my backup procedures so 6 nights a week it only takes 20 minutes and 1 night does everything for 40 minutes. I also moved the backup to the hour with the least amount of web traffic hitting the database. I also switched from using @@IDENTITY to SCOPE_IDENTITY after an insert.
