2019-2020 Conference Demos and Sample Databases

SAMPLE DATABASES

As used in many conference sessions, these sample databases are useful for learning and reproducing the behavior of most demos. Credit is used in many performance-related demos. SalesDB is used in many “online operations” demos. Unzip and restore (possibly, WITH MOVE) to use.

SAMPLE CORRUPT DATABASES

These zip files contain the common corrupt databases that Paul uses for some of the DBCC CHECKDB demos. Some of the databases will only work on some versions of SQL Server so for instructions, see this blog post for details. Unzip and restore (possibly, WITH MOVE) to use.

There are a couple of corrupt 2014 AdventureWorks databases that are used during the IE0 class in this zip. (90MB zip/~670MB restored)
