1. To install SQL Server 2014 documentation locally?
SSMS -> Help -> Manage Help Settings -> Help Library Manager then choose Install Content from online
Under SQL Server 2014 Add Books Online, Developer Reference and Installation.
You can also check for updates online as well.
2. What is new in SQL Server 2014 Integration Services?
As per books online nothing! However Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Integration Services
does mention 2014 enhancements although it says they are from codeplex and not integrated into the base product yet.
3. What is new in Report Services?
Books Online only mentioned addition of support for Chrome as a browser!
4. What T-SQL enhancements are there in 2014?
This is covered at http://www.smooth1.co.uk/sqlserver2014/t_sql_enhancements.html
5. Resource Governor for physical IO, the IO settings do not appear in SSMS.
If you run ‘script resource pool as’ the settings are visible:
/****** Object: ResourcePool [PoolAdmin] Script Date: 05/05/2014 10:17:42 ******/
CREATE RESOURCE POOL [PoolAdmin] WITH(min_cpu_percent=0,
AFFINITY SCHEDULER = AUTO
I have mail Mark Souza (General Manager -Data Platform Group) for an update when these will appear in the properties page.
Questions from my presentation at SQL Saturday Exeter 2014:
1. Backup to Azure – Backup to URL https or http?
“Here is a sample URL value: http[s]://ACCOUNTNAME.Blob.core.windows.net/<CONTAINER>/<FILENAME.bak>. HTTPS is not required, but is recommended.”
2. What happens if you turn on 2014 trace flags 2312 (force new cardinality estimator) and 9481 (force old cardinality estimator) at the same time do you get an error?
No, niether is used and the database compatability level determines the cardinality estimator that is used. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/psssql/archive/2014/04/01/sql-server-2014-s-new-cardinality-estimator-part-1.aspx
Is the showplan really changes for columnstore indexes in 2014? ” The EstimatedExecutionMode and ActualExecutionMode properties have two possible values: Batch or Row. The Storage property has two possible values: RowStore and ColumnStore.” Surely that was in 2012?
Books online still says that both EstimatedExecutionMode/ActualExecution Mode and Storage properties are new in 2014 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb510411(v=sql.120).aspx#CCI. Actually only the Storage Propery is new http://www.smooth1.co.uk/sqlserver2014/csi.html
