Comment on Docker and Windows 10 1709 Patch, The End by DBAkevlar http://dbakevlar.com/2018/02/docker-windows-10-1709-patch-end/#comment-1930529 Fri, 16 Feb 2018 13:14:00 +0000 http://dbakevlar.com/?p=7801#comment-1930529 This was part of it, as I discovered in my original research. The change was unexpected to other applications and created a chain of conflicts that weren’t well thought out when you consider the popularity of VM and container technology.

Comment on Why SQL Server Shouldn’t Run as Root on Linux by oraclebase http://dbakevlar.com/2018/01/sql-server-shouldnt-run-root-linux/#comment-1930257 Tue, 23 Jan 2018 16:15:00 +0000 http://dbakevlar.com/?p=7735#comment-1930257 I wonder how many people thought it was OK generally to run SQL Server as root, and how many thought it was OK because it was in a container? There does seem to be this misconception that root inside a docker container is magically safer than root on the host. I’ve seen a number of Dockerfiles that make me think, “Really?” 🙂

Cheers

Comment on The Future of the DBA, #C18LV, Video 1 by Vitaly Kaminsky http://dbakevlar.com/2018/01/future-dba-c18lv-video-1/#comment-1930174 Mon, 15 Jan 2018 14:44:00 +0000 http://dbakevlar.com/?p=7697#comment-1930174 Thank you for raising valid points.
I agree with your assessment of the general trend towards WallMart style operations.
Unfortunately for the DBAs as a profession, the digital WallMarts will be location-independent and we all know that the value always wins at WallMart.
There will be, of course, the High Street boutiques, but not a mass market any more.
There are interesting real-life stats covering the last 12 years here: https://www.itjobswatch.co.uk/jobs/uk/oracle%20dba.do

If it makes sense, then use the admin groups with hierarchy, otherwise, simplify and use dynamic groups.
