I have recently accepted a position as the DBA for a mid-sized company with several SQL Servers (7 thru 2005) along with numerous disparate applications (Excel, Access etc.) that use data from the SQL Servers. This is definitely a loaded question, but what are the major considerations and areas I need to immediately focus on and learn about in order to get a strong grasp of the 'state' that my servers and databases are currently in. I have a pretty good good idea of what I need to concentrate on but was hoping to use this forum as a way to guarantee I haven't left any gaps in the discovery phase/checklist of this position. Your useful insights, thoughts, suggestions and gotchas would be greatly appreciated.
