SQL Server 2k5: Case of the Missing Service Manager

16-Apr-06 11:09 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments
You notice it immediately after installing SQL Server 2005 for the 1st time: the systray icon you’ve come to depend on as a developer of data access web applications since the days of Windows NT is suddenly missing!  What has Bill done with it?!?!!? Why is it gone?!?
Well admittedly, this sleuth worn out from a weekend of sorting out other mysteries has shied away from diving into this with both feet. But all is not lost!  For there is a 3rd-party workaround reccommended by the good folks at The Code Project called "SQL 2005 Service Manager"…written handily by a one Jasper Smith who, based on the install notes appears to be leveraging CLR features within the new DB engine itself (yes; another big change for 2k5 is the CLR resides on the database too, with implications aplenty).  Thus one could well-imagine it’s not a huge deal to implement a service manager desktop app using the .NET Framework 2.0, as this nifty little tool does.
Add to this development of it has been ongoing since the days of the beta when it was called "Yukon" or whatever so I’m expecting the tool to be pretty solid.
…and you’ll hear otherwise here if it isn’t – be sure of that.
