A week date is a type of calendar which uses the year, week of the year, and day of the week to refer to to dates. In the ISO 8601 week date, the first week of the year is the week starting from Monday which contains January 4th. An ISO 8601 week date can thus have a different year number than the corresponding Gregorian date. The first week of the year is numbered 01 , and the first day of the week, Monday, is numbered 1 . Weeks are written in YYYY-Www-D or YYYYWwwD format, where the upper case W is literal. The corresponding strftime literals are %G-W%V-%u and %GW%V%u .
Cloning can present a much bigger problem. One alternative mechanism for provisioning is to copy the mdf file onto each machine and attach it on each server. One can, of course run a backup from the database you want to copy, and restore it to each clone. Both these techniques are slow, end up with a mass of data being moved around the network and use a lot of disk space. It can also leave more complications for security due to the file permissions that are necessary. The editor tells me that Simple Talk is due to publish an article by Grant Fritchey that tells you how to do this.
