You are putting Symantec to Shame. Yeah Symantec take the walk of shame. You should hire this guy.
This is the kind of tools that should be made available as part of the product to allow you to have a view into EV.
I will get going on testing it in my lab. I'm sure we will be in touch
It is not critical. Just make sure you have a DBA or know what you are doing. I set the document out with system safety in mind. For my implementation I found it easier to setup a SQL Express server to one side completely seperate from the live EV databases. This was simply because of change management etc.
