When we create DSN to the Azure SQL Database using Microsoft tool odbcad32.exe, then the password is not saved. Therefore, each time we use the DSN we need to fill the password. Can we skip this task and store the password in the DSN cata?

Note! This is a pure answer to a question in Microsoft new forum interface Q&A. The forum does not allow me to publish the answer raising the absurd error "Exceeded the Normal request".

When we are trying to create a custom name for a new vNet while creating managed instance using the portal, the default name is not changed. The comment in the portal explicitly says "To create new subnet select option with the prefix (new)". Unfortunately, this does not works (tested on Chrome Version 80.0.3987.122). if you use Azure Web Portal and you are going to create a new Azure SQL Managed Instance service, then you should keep reading, since I found a small bug. More interesting is that I will present a simple workaround I found.

Execute a job from inside another job is a simple task like executing any query. We simply need to start the external Job using the built-in stored procedure msdb.dbo.sp_start_job. Unfortunately if we have multiple jobs which needed to be executed in specific order Synchronously (meaning that only when one job end then the next one start), is a more complex task using the built-in SQL Server Agent. In this post I will mentioned several options to solve this task.

Let's assume that we have two databases A and B and we want to swap the names so the old database A will become B and the old database B will become A. In first glance you might think that you can simply backup both databases and restore database A with the name B and restore database B with the name A. This solution for swat two databases was presented in the MSDN forum. In this post I explain why this is not so simple and demonstrate one of the problematic issue in swapping databases this way.
