Automating SQL Server Installation and Configuration

K. Brian Kelley
In the current fast paced environment that is information technology, we want to build fast and we want to build consistently. When it comes to SQL Server, that means automation. We want to automate the whole build process, from the server deployment to the after installation scripts. In this session we’ll look at what you can automate, how to do it, and how to include some options for customization using a template-based approach. We’ll also look at how to set specific configuration and attempt to maintain them beyond installation.
