    Hi Jugal,
    I have two years experience in T-SQL. I would like to develop my skills in it, and also choose DBA as profession. Could you suggest what I should be doing. In my current role, I do analysis using T-SQL. But I want to be more of SQL person than an analyst.
    Many thanks,
    D

      You can check DBA roles and responsibilities page of my blog and try to get the expertise on those areas. T-SQL Performance Tuning will be the good start for you.

    Hi Jugal Shah my name is Srinivas and pls tell me what are the main roles for SQL DBA L1,L2&L3 levels I’m trying on SQL DBA. Could you please send me the answer to my mail id dsbabu.sqldba@gmail.com

    1. Jugal Shah Post author

      L1 is entry level DBA, where they will get the basic DBA work and will follow certain knowledge articles to troubleshoot it.
      L2 is second level experience DBA and it will hand most of DBA responsibilities
      L3 is third level escalation where issues which are not resolved by L1 or L2 will be assigned to L3
