Hi there,

You will need to create a file called file.txt or rename file.txt to say sqlserverlist.txt or something.

Then you will need to list all your sqlservers in that file. oncee this is done run that program it will then ask you to enter a string say type in the first 3 letters of the server and press enter it will then bring you back all the servers with a simaler name then press what ever number server you want.

Regards

T

Cool that is good, I like this program i have not seen one like it so had to write it, where i work we have around 100 sqlservers and its a pain to login to every box or through the gui sometimes so this is very quick. I hope you like the program.

I am pretty much new to powershell.
I saw this script is quite useful for my environment. If someone let me know how to use this.
I tried couple of time. But everytime i ran the below script, it terminates automatically but i have the text file in D drive.

Please correct me if i am wrong...
I created a file in D:\sqlList.txt
then,
Run> Powershell> enter
PS D:\ document and setting\abc cd \
PS D:\gci
-a --- _________________
-a --- 6/21/2010 10.20am 11 sqlList.txt

#copy the code and paste it in the window via right click
PS D:\$file = get-content "sqlList.txt"

# checks file if not found then terminates

if (-not($file))
{
write-error($file+ " not found. Terminating .... ");
exit
}
# matches the string ie type in any string for yout instance

$match = $file | Select-String (Read-Host "search string")
# if the match is found then this will run the select
if ($match.count -gt 0)
{
$inst = @()
for ($i = 0; $i -lt $match.count; $i++)
{
$temp = ""
$line = $match[$i].tostring()
for ($j = $line.length-1; $j -ge 0; $j--)
{
if ($line[$j] -eq ":")
{
break
}
$temp = $line[$j] + $temp
}

$inst = $inst + $temp
write-output ("Press "+($i+1)+" for : " + $inst[$i])
}

$inp = ""
$flag = "true"
do {
$inp = read-host("Enter choice : 1 - "+$match.count)
if ($inp -lt 1 -or $inp -gt $match.count)
{
$flag = "false";
write-error ("Invalid entry. Enter between 1 - "+$match.count)
}
else {
$flag = "true";
}
} while ($flag -eq "false")

write-output ("Logging on to the SQLSERVER you requested: "+$inst[$inp-1])

if ($inst[$inp-1] -ne "") {
$inst[$inp-1] + ""; sqlcmd -S $inst[$inp-1] -E
}

}


--If i try to type all the code in powershell window then at the end how to execute this code...

I think i am doing some silly mistake, but please help me to get it over...

Thanks in advance....
