Changing the Job Owner, doesn’t change the Schedule Owner

One of the capabilities that we do offer to our developers is the ability for themselves to create SQL Server Agent Jobs in our DEV/TEST Environments, so they perform some of their work without the DBA to be involved.

Those days at work I had to remove a bunch of databases from the Availability Groups and later drop them from the primary and secondary replicas. I know I could do the click, click and drop thing, but why not PowerShell? I decided to invest some time, around 10 minutes and create this nice and […]
