Figures 1-8 and 1-9

Figures 1-8 and 1-9 are out of order. Figure 1-8 should be Figure 1-9, and Figure 1-9 should be Figure 1-8.

Figure 1.8

The graphic in figures 1.8 and 1.9 are the wrong way around. 1.8 shows a side-by side migration but is captioned as an in-place migration, whereas 1.9 shows an in-place migration.

Figure 1-8 and Figure 1-9

I see in Page 17,18,19 we discuss about "Installation, Upgrade, and Migration Strategies" and according to the book, it is printed as below: Fig 1-8 on Page 18 -> In-place Upgrade. Fig 1-9 on Page 19 -> Side-by-Side Migration. I doubt that it should be printed this way: Fig 1-8 -> Side-by-Side Migration. Fig 1-9 -> In-place Upgrade.

1st paragraph, 8th line

When describing compression benefits of ColumnStore indexes, incorrectly refers to the compression algorithm as "VertiPag". This should be "VertiPaq" as mentioned earlier in the same paragraph.

last paragraph (bottom of page)

Describing audit log failure behavior options, the heading for the first option says "On Audit Shut Down Server". This should say "On Audit Log Failure: Shut down server". I would also recommend changing the order that the options are listed in the text so that they match the order presented in the "Create Audit" dialog. The options are listed in book as: On Audit Shut Down Server (note typo as described above) On Audit Log Failure: Continue On Audit Log Failure: Fail Operation The options are listed in the "Create Audit" dialog as: On Audit Log Failure: Continue On Audit Log Failure: Shut down server On Audit Log Failure: Fail operation

Code

I got an error that begins, "The variable name '@authOK' has already been declared." The code says, for the second time, "DECLARE @authOK bit". It probably should not say that.
