Common DBA Tasks for Microsoft SQL Server

This section describes the Amazon RDS-specific implementations of some common DBA tasks for DB instances that are running the Microsoft SQL Server database engine. In order to deliver a managed service experience, Amazon RDS does not provide shell access to DB instances, and it restricts access to certain system procedures and tables that require advanced privileges.

Note

When working with a SQL Server DB instance, you can run scripts to modify a newly created database, but you cannot modify the [model] database, the database used as the model for new databases.
