Featured Presentation

Using gMSAs (group Managed Service Accounts) with SQL Server

Speaker: Corey Baum, Senior Database Administrator

Summary: Introduced in Windows Server 2008R2 and Windows 7, a standalone Managed Service Account (sMSA) is a managed domain account that provides automatic password management, simplified service principal name (SPN) management and the ability to delegate the management to other administrators. Building on top of sMSA, the group Managed Service Account (gMSA) provides the same functionality within the domain but also extends that functionality over multiple servers. When a gMSA is used as service principals, the Windows operating system manages the password for the account instead of relying on the administrator to manage the password. No more updating and managing passwords where you can use a gMSA.

About Corey: Corey Baum is a Senior Database Administrator with more than 15 years of experience in the Information Technology industry.

Call for Speakers

Peter Palka is trying to put together a 6 month calendar of speakers and topics. Peter would like to start having two presentations per meeting. One topic could be a short 15 minute presentation and then the other could be a 60-90 minute topic. 

 If you have done something you think is noteworthy that others could benefit from, Peter would like to hear from you. He is willing to help you turn any ideas you have into a presentation. OASSUG is a user group, provided and supported by local area SQL Server users.

  Remember you don’t have to do a full-blown 90 minute presentation; even just a short presentation would be a great way to support our local SQL Server user group.
