Hi Everyone,

I am an MCSE and working as a Second line Microsoft Networking Engineer. I am getting tired of learning new different staff all the time. Is it worth for me to learn SQL and become DBA? Please advice.

Many thanks in Advance.
M.

Most DBA jobs are no longer focussing on SQL.
The greater portion of the job goes towards backup/recovery, security, database maintenance/performance.
SQL is fundamental to becoming a DBA, but you will have to know alot more than SQL to become DBA. So it will take at least 1-2 years before becoming a DBA

If you study hard, practice, and participate in forums you can become a DBA...................Just download and install the database you like and practice. Search in Amazon for good books about the database and SQL.......  Nothing is impossible...........


People see DBA as the god of IT world...........It is just another technology.......

I agree with the suggested comments but you should learn SQL if possible. It would make you a better DBA since you will not have to rely on built in functions on a particular RDBMS and make adminstering other RDBMS easier since they mostly use the same commands
