      Hi Srini Good to see about summer 12 , Can you also post us steps taken while
      ” REFRESHING A SANDBOX ” with your experience.
      WHat are the steps taken, what is that we have to do before we refresh sandbox,

      • Srini says:

        Thank you Sumanth, refreshing sandbox is really varies based upon the customer.
        Here are some quick steps what I remember
        1. Send out notification to respected teams such as developers, client team, testing team
        2. Take your complete backup of existing sandbox using eclipse, ant tool or third party tools
        3. Start refresh your sandbox by logging into production
        4. Send out another reminder to teams
        5. Activate the sandbox
        6. Mask your email fields in contacts, leads, any other custom objects
        7. There might be a secure data, if there are any object(s) then make sure you delete or archive them into your local database.
        8. If there are any hard-coded urls then make sure you update them with the respective ids (nice to document this)
        9. Activate/create new users in the new sandbox
        10. Send out an email communication to all the groups
        11. Your development team can update their code with the latest backed out code

        Hope this helps 🙂

  31. For the novice, the first thing you need to understand is what the term “Digital Single Lens Reflex” means.
    Samsung M620 Black mobile is just big enough to display four icons side by side and measures only 1.
    Whenever you rent a book from them, they plant a tree to
    show the benefits of renting books.

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours lately, but I never discovered any
    attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  33. Hello i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anywhere,
    when i read this article i thought i could also make comment due to this sensible post.

  34. While waiting for help, the homeowner may call their insurance provider to inform them of the problem and inquire if it’s part of the coverage. If you find that the area immediately around your house is very damp, you can add a gravel and limestone border, which will help with drainage. The irritants in the home that can trigger asthma are a lot; cigarette smoke, perfumes, aerosol sprays, fumes from cleaning products and paints.

  35. Nice Information you have to share.
