Configuring Ola’s Scripts

Ben Miller begins a series on Ola Hallengren’s maintenance solution:

I recommended creating a database to use for this solution or even installing it into an existing DBA function database. I usually create a DBA database and use it for this purpose and others as well. With this new database, you configure the Database in the header of the maintenance solution SQL file, whether to create jobs, retention time and backup directory for the jobs.
