47 Incorrect Deployment Assumptions

Brent Ozar has a list of 47 assumptions regarding database deployments that turn out not always to be true:

30. The deployment person wouldn’t dream of only highlighting some of it and running it.

31. The staff who were supposed to work with you during the deployment will be available.

32. The staff, if available at the start of the call, will be available during the entire call.

33. The staff won’t come down with food poisoning halfway through the deployment call, forget to mute their home office phone, step into the bathroom, and leave the bathroom door open.

I’ve never had item #33 happen to me, but that’s a pretty solid list of stuff that can go wrong.
