I have a couple of years experience with our company SQL data warehouse, and am creating and archiving tables and routines mostly with stored procedures. I understand there is a lot more to being a DBA than some exposure to a SQL MS, but I would like to venture down that path.
So my question, somebody in my situation who would like to become a DBA, how would you recommend I tackle the task? I could study - I have some time and money for studies, and access to a SQL warehouse so can accumulate the experience required. Are certain qualifications required? Whenever I look at DBA jobs they often require SSIS and SSRS so how can I tackle these?
Thanks for your help
