System Databases The system databases are comprised of Master, Model, MSDB, TempDB, and the hidden Resource database. If the server is configured to be a replication distributor, there will also be at least one system distribution database that is named during the replication configuration process. The Master Database The Master database is used to record all server-level objects in SQL Server 2005. This includes Server Logon accounts, Linked Server definitions, and EndPoints. The Master database also records information about all the other databases on the server (such as their file locations and names).

A typical database application is constrained within one database that contains all the data objects required to provide the functionality the application requires. This is not always the case, but it is the most common. 12 Introducing SQL Server 2005 Schema Each database can contain one or more schemas. A schema is a namespace for database objects.

A database schema is a defined namespace in which database objects exist.

I was presented with a file server, domain controller, and database server, and had to determine where to place the faster CPU, the better disk array, and the new RAM. I remember hating those questions. Obviously, the best place to put all the resources was on the database server, but I knew that wasn’t what the test designers were looking for, so I grudgingly went along with their twisted view of the enterprise and managed to pass the exam.
