Hello everyone. I work for a company that was using SQL Server 2008 R2 with Tools (express). We are moving to SQL Server 2012 with Tools (express) due to the end of life of support and patches for 2008 R2.
with 2008 R2, our POS offering would startup and boot very fast after windows re-started. This is one of the selling points of our system, if a customer needs to reboot the system, Windows and our POS restart in 20 seconds or less. BUT now with SQL 2012, we are having to place a start up delay for the POS, which takes an extra 15 seconds or more.
My ultimate question is: How can I get 2012 to start up faster, as soon as Windows boots? As fast as 2088 R2, at least.
Google is no help and I dont want to trial and error this. I figured I would ask the experts.
Thank you all, as always.
