I will be attending the launch tomorrow at McCormick Place. I will be wondering around and attending sessions. Feel free to stop me and say hi if you will be there. To get a glimpse of what I look like, check out the book I co-wrote on SSIS. I am the one on the upper right corner of the cover page.
Microsoft also released a feature pack for SQL Server 2005. Here you can download and install a lot of things, such as drivers for DB2, Native Client, JDBC drivers. Among them, you can download and install SQLCMD by itself. Maybe that’s one way to get around the limititions I described in this post?
