TechEd in Paradise October 15th, 2005
Whew !!! What a location to have TechEd !!! I just got back from the TechEd Sri Lanka tour and am really excited to say it was amazing. Even though I had a tough lineup of back to back sessions with about 5 Sessions in the database track, I really loved each and every topic myself. Having said that I was running cold and fever for most part of the stay. But, SODA, XML & CLR Best Practices, SQL Server 2005 Tools, SSIS, Security in SQL Server 2005 were the topics I had to take. (Personally) except SODA which I did as per the plan of using the PPT way of talk, I resorted to the free flow mode for rest of the topics. Because I could sense that most of the attendees were not fluent / exposed to SQL Server 2005 very much. So I used this as opportunity to talk about the basics, architecture and the details of the topics in discussion.
Overall, I presume the ratings were also good :) !!! More importantly I was satisfied talking to people in general after every session. Nevertheless the TechEd Party on Thursday evening was a blast with many gifts for the participants including XBox series, bags and even a trip to Bangkok. The organizers were really professional in their approach and my hats off to their efforts.
Hoping to meet the people in future TechEd’s too.

Regenerate the package ID in SSIS October 7th, 2005
In Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS), a 16-byte GUID is generated and stored as the PackageID property of a SSIS package when the SSIS package is created. After you run the package, you can write the package ID to a log file by using the SSIS log provider. This package ID differentiates log entries for different packages
Read this KB article that explains this process.
Communicating with Analysis Services October 7th, 2005
Do ADO MD.NET and XMLA clients communicate differently with a SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services instance than with a SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services instance?
A good explanation on the WinITPro Site.
