[PL] Zmiany w cenniku SPLA – na minus (styczeń 2013)

Z dniem pierwszego stycznia bieżącego roku zmienił się cennik produktów dostępnych w ramach programu SPLA (Software Provider License Agreement), któremu podlegają hosterzy oprogramowania. Poświęcę temu cennikowi dwa wpisy. Pierwszy dotyczny “zmian na minus” czyli tak naprawdę na plus, bowiem oznacza zwyżkę cen. Produktów tych jest dwadzieścia cztery. Dla kilku z nich są to dość duże podwyżki, ale jest też sporo zupełnie minimalnych. Wszystkie wartości podane są w euro (ponieważ należymy do krajów rozliczających się tej właśnie walucie) i są wartościami netto.

Jak widać kilka produktów znacząco zmieniło swoją cenę, ale dla wielu zmian jest minimalna. W następnym poście spojrzymy na drugą stronę medalu.

Post Scriptum: Na wniosek Kuby, ukryłem ceny podstawowe pozostawiajac tylko różnice, co mam nadzieję nie jest sprzeczne ani z dobrymi praktykami ani z oficjalną linią producenta…

[EN] How to DO IT? Changing Server Name in SQL Server.

Last week, this week and next week are under my New Labs Development Shadow. Plan is  big for me: some machines for SQL Server, some for SharePoint, some for testing my production environment, some just only for joy. And one of the part of my environment are oriented for SQL Server. Plan is really simple:

All versions of SQL Server (separate by versions and service packs) run on separate virtual machines. All SQL Servers based on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1 x64. Basic environmet is identical for all machines. The differences starting with SQL Server:

  • one machine for SQL Server 2005 SP4
  • four machines with SQL Server 2008 (without and with SP1, SP2, SP3)
  • three machines with SQL Server 2008 R2 (without and with SP1, SP2)
  • two machnes with SQL Server 2012 (with and without SP)

Building ten machines is extremely time consuming. I using cloning machines (soon in other post about it). Because each machine is the clone from another  branch, preparation happened in few steps:

  • step one: master (Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1 x64 with all updates)
  • step two: copied to four copies
  • step three: on second copy installed SQL Server 2008 without any updates
  • step four: copied for four copies (without and with SP1, SP2, SP3)
  • step five: each copy are configuring separately

When my virtual machine with SQL Server 2008 SP3 and CU 8 has been configured, I asked my new server: Hello, What’s Your name? So we asking:

1: sp_helpserver
2: SELECT @@servername

And result is completely unexpected:

Captura_HowChangeInstanceName_02

Pict.01 | Result of executing command about server name

Ho, ho, ho. Did You remember phone number for the girl above? Not? Nothing New, You watched for her eyes, you not listen. Why our instance name os so weird? This is NETWORK NAME of Windows Server definied by default Windows Name Generator. Even we changed name in Control panel, our instance (You remember she wasn’t installed from begining. She’s clone). A Nightmare to Remember is remembering instance name with more that… ONE INSTANCE. So, can we rename our instance? If we can saying sweetie or kitty or … for our girl (the real name should be… Cassandra), we can change the name. let’s do it – one more important thing – withour surgery assistance.

So we should go to SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) and executing statement:

1: sp_dropserver <old_name>;
2: GO
3: sp_addserver <new_name>, local;
4: GO

Executing statement is not all. Next we must restart the instance with command line:

Captura_HowChangeInstanceName_03

Pict.2 | Standard cmd prompt: NET STOP MSSQLSERVER and NET START MSSQLSERVER

After changing Server name, we can ask again: OK, sweetie. What is Your real name?l

Captura_HowChangeInstanceName_04

Pict.3 | New Server Name is visible after all.

ENJOY.

[EN] The 2012 Year has finished. Time for summary.

IMG_0062As many of my friends, a lot of bloggers and persons (better or less known) I thought about writing a short summary of my last professional year. Maybe it will not be very interesting for You (hope not) but it’s important for me – to be fair with me, myself nad I. So, what’s happened?

It was very special year for my. In a standard calendar Year 2012 just finished. But The Year of The Dragos still continue… It was very hard year with some personal affairs (this blog is not good place to write about it – but if You know me – two good things happened). I will try concentrate to my professional life, with my company, with my coleagues, with my community (communities) and with my personal goals for past year:

  • Professional Job
  • Normally I’m working in Data Center in Wrocław. In non-standard hours (like 168 h per month in 24/7/365 mode). Generally nothing new happened, except… I’m living in this DC for last seven Year. In the middle of last year my branch has been sold with “all benefits of invertory”. The future is unknown, but it’s still “CORPORATION”
  • Teaching
    • I’m very happy, ‘cos I had great pleasure for providing some Microsoft Official Course Course trainings, oriented for SharePoint and SQL Server. My personal rate is pretty good: avg about 7,95 / but of course could be better. And I preffer teaching in English than in Polish.
  • Learning
    • I hadn’t enought time for lear something interesting and important for me. In this area last year has failed. I know one of my personal goals for next year is learning more, and more. However I spend some days in security training with subjects like: cryptography, wifi hacking, wireshark, big ip, back track, hsm and more.
  • User Group (s)
    • I’m worked hard (Yes I know not enough hard as possible) with my first group: Polish SQL Server User Group in Wroclaw. I provided eight meetings of my group, and I’ve plan for more in this year. Our community in Poland are still in “development” and we had better and worse times in last year.
  • Speaking
    • I’m speaker. Yes I’M SPEAKER. I had great opportunnity for speaking on User Grups Meeting in Poland (9 sessions / Wroclaw, Cracow, Warsaw), IT Conferences in Poland (5 sessions / Cracow, Warsaw, Wroclaw) and Professional Conferences across Europe (8 sessions / London, Cambridge, Sofia, Dublin, Berchtesgaden).
  • Blogging
    • I’m still blogger, sometimes more active, sometimes less. It depends on my free time. But I’m still owner of my three professional blogs: My MVP Blog {62 posts } (You are here), about Licensing {only 3 posts} (You can go here) and IT PRo {28 posts} (which is here). I also writing on another blogs…
  • Social Media
  • Conferences
    • ooppss. I was on many, many conferences last year. I provided sessions, and or supporting in “helpers” role and just was attendee. From 27 Conferences most important for me was: SQL Saturdays (Dublin, Cambridge, Munich, Sofia), SQLBits (London), SQL in the City (London), VMWare Forum, IBM IT Forum, EMC Forum, DevDays, TechEd Europe and MVP CEE & Italy Summit. Most effectivness, most influenced, most practical.
  • Travels
    • My travel diary says: “You travelled a lot, more than year before and still counting”. Summary statistics are very interesting for me:
  • Writing
    • I wrote three articles for magazines, dozens (twenty maybe thirty) news on WSS site. Nothing super special, I’ve plan for writing more this year.
  • Collaboration
    • I had great opportunnity to be an Technical Reviewer for book about MDX in SQL Server 2012. Thank You Ashim Mazumder for this project.
  • Recognizing
  •  

    imageSo, generally my professional year finished better than 2011. In 2013 I’ve plan to working more, writing more, speaking more, blogging more, more self-coaching… But where is work-life balance? Be sure, I’m controlling crowds.
