Course Catalog > Almost On: A Guide to Troubleshooting Availability Groups and FCIs

When your availability solution has issues, it potentially affects everything. The worst case scenario is that you are completely down, taking many parts of the business offline. At best, you have a setup hiccup or are experiencing other isssues such as a lagging secondary replica. No matter the cause, the business just wants to go back to normal as soon as possible. Do you have the skills to get them there?

Whether or not you have a support contract with Microsoft, anyone deploying clustered implementations of SQL Server – Always On Availability Groups and Always On Failover Cluster Instances – should possess the basic fundamentals to troubleshoot at least common problems (if not more) when it comes to these configurations. The problem is that the lessons learned and acquiring that skills set often happens after something goes awry. At that point it is too late.

The 1-day Almost On: A Guide to Troubleshooting Availability Groups and FCIs class from SQLHAU® covers how to troubleshoot AGs and FCIs to deal with real world problems no matter if you you have physical, virtual, and/or public cloud-based deployments, or use Linux or Windows Server. The topics include:

  • Ensuring that your initial configuration is rock solid and will not cause issues when in production
  • How to diagnose and fix common issues with AGs and FCIs
  • How to diagnose and fix common issues with the underlying cluster layer – the Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC) for Windows Server-based deployments
  • Learn about what logs matter, the tools you can use for diagnosis, as well as methodolgies for troubleshooting

Not only will you learn via instructor-led content as well as demos, but you’ll also get hands on experience with a lab to reinforce key concepts shown during the day.
