You will begin your journey on the road to a healthy SQL Server infrastructure with a checklist. A checklist is a simple way to organize the things you’ll need to do, both long and short term. It provides an agenda to keep you on track and is a tangible item that you can refer to and affirmatively say, “I am done with these items; only three more to go.” It is also something you can present to management and colleagues to show that you have documented your servers. Moreover, the checklist gives you clarity and purpose, allows you to focus on what needs to be done, keeps you on schedule, and acts as a motivator when you’re not sure what to do next. Follow the checklist and follow the road map that I am laying out for you here to achieve a certifiably healthy SQL Server environment.
