  3. How do you compare your recent build with an older build to see if configuration values have changed?

  4. What should happen if the build is done on a server instance with a different version of the product?

  5. Why would you be able to get a better execution plan than the optimizer and thus improve performance?

  6. Are changes likely to occur in only a small part of the database or in a large part of the database?

  7. Should audit and monitoring service be required for users in specific groups or with specific roles?

  8. Do you need a different build process for development, test, integration, release, and deployment?

  9. How do you keep the connector from becoming clogged with events after being shut down for a while?

  10. Which system database should you immediately back up to ensure that the logins are also backed up?
