From time to time MinionWare sendsÂ out updates to the SQL Server version table. This has no effect on the system as a whole, and is safe to run. The update is sent in clear text so youâ€™ll be able to inspect the statements being run.
What is the SQL Version table?
Minion Enterprise gives you the ability to not only see what version of SQL Server youâ€™re on, but also what version you should be on. We accomplish this by keeping an updated version table that contains the latest SQL Server CUs, security updates, service packs, and hotfixes. So now you can easily see how far behind you are on patches, and even setup alerts to let you know when youâ€™re too far behind. This feature is a fabulous way to keep track of SQL Server patches across your entire enterprise, and not just a server at a time.
