New DBA Manager

Its never easy to walk into a role where there has been an existing team, and come in and manage it.

They have there systems and ways of doing things and you have yours.  However its important to ensure that you don't step on any feet but also keep your own integrity.

So how can you go about building this.  I decided the best way would be to create a check list of questions that can be asked to give a starting point of where to go next.

Below are the questions.  I will post a new post of the answer of each:-

 List All DataBases \ Servers

List of Instances \ environments \ Clusters

HA / DR / Replication relationships

SLAs
