Thanks Dennis
To get a position "exclusively" as a dba, I need a good certification. Because currently I'm more time developing than dbaing :)

I really don't have too much time to be in the database, frequently I forget some important points I invetigated previously, beacuse my mind must be in other tasks.

I think I will have to be about 5 years following your advice to get a better positioning as dba, as the one I could get with a good certification, I'm 34 years old, and I want to get an specialization in one area.

I'm not telling this is a bad idea, but to take that about five years to get a sun certified enterprise architect, on java technology, will be more profitable.
Finally a certification is a certification, and it allows better positions, and a better positiosn, is better to be even more specialized on the subject.
