Idera Extends SQL admin toolset Lineup

Idera, a provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, has announced Idera SQL admin toolset 1.5, a set of 25 desktop tools for monitoring, troubleshooting, administering and reporting on SQL Server.

The latest release adds a new tool, Linked Server Copy, which helps database administrators (DBAs) with their day to day management tasks by allowing them to copy linked servers from one SQL Server instance to another along with the associated settings and permissions. With this tool, DBAs can also view all the linked servers that exist on the source server and not on the destination SQL Server instance; and copy all or specific linked servers from the source SQL Server instance to a destination SQL Server instance.

The SQL admin toolset is intended to provide DBAs with a rich set of productivity tools on their desktop that offer the ability to multi-query, check passwords, analyze indexes and patches, check server configurations, edit and move jobs, and gather server statistics.
