Now this is something that every DBA should do, or at least persuade whoever is responsible for backups to do it.
Otherwise you may find yourself in a situation where a database is corrupt and a restore is not possible. Which means that you have to try and recover the database using other methods like the one here.
I can tell you from experience that this is definitely not the best situation to be in unless you enjoy working for over twenty-four hours straight. So, if your backups are not being tested at the moment then I highly recommend you change that.
And if you are a DBA who can’t say this, Kevin has some advice for each of the ten.
