SQL2K5 Database Engine Tuning Advisor

P: n/a
Hi,

I find much regrettable that Database Engine Tuning Advisor be not part of
MS-Express Edition ... A server without such help is not a server.
Besides, you've got the tutorials, but not the tool to play with :-(((

There will certainly be SQL Server features that are not available in all
SQL Server editions, especially in the free SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.
... A server without such help is not a server.
Previous versions of SQL Server didn't have this feature and were still
'servers'. A competent DBA should be able to perform database tuning
manually. I agree that DETA can be a DBA productivity tool or used as a GUI
tool to hold a non-DBA's hand. IMHO, it's not a core server component.
Besides, you've got the tutorials, but not the tool to play with :-(((
MS Marketing probably wants to whet your appetite :-)

If you feel strongly that this feature should be included, consider making
this suggestion at the product feedback center:
http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/productfeedback/. You could also spend 50
USD for the developer edition and then implement recommendations on your
Express Edition database schema.

Hope this helps.
