SAPIEN Update service bulletin

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 by Alex Riedel
Recently we introduced a new SAPIEN software update tool, which makes it easier to directly download and install SAPIEN software updates. The tool also updates itself when there is a newer version of the update tool. Unfortunately on some machines that may have caused that process to get stuck, because the file may now be owned be an elevated admin and can no longer be overwritten without elevation. So if you have not seen any new updates to our software recently, you may have to launch the update tool manually with elevation. You only have to do this once, do…   More »

PowerShell in the UK? You Bet! And SAPIEN is Supporting the Community!

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 by Robert Morey
  SQLSaturdays worldwide are a great vehicle for database administrators and others to get together, learn from each other, and network.  Obviously, they center around SQL but we at SAPIEN are quite pleased to see PowerShell becoming part of these events.  Now that Microsoft has PowerShell at the center of its scripting world, this only makes sense.  You can see two presentations related to PowerShell on the SQLSaturday #228 schedule.  As with other user groups, we are doing our best to support SQLSaturday events by donating swag. Last year, we sent software, ebooks, training videos, t-shirts, and so on to…   More »
