Hi,

Very good article!!! :)

Actually, as you mentioned in this article, WMI is very least used but the most powerful technique. It will be good if the article contain the basic idea about it with some link to WMI. It will be more helpful to the reader to have a thought about WMI as it is not widely used.

But for those who are aware with WMI, this is the best article!!!

Thanks for sharing such.

Good Luck.

Excellent article - implementing this as we speak...

Change syntax of query from:
SELECT FreeSpace, DeviceId, Size, SystemName, Description FROM in32_LogicalDiskwhere DriveType= 3

to

SELECT FreeSpace, DeviceId, Size, SystemName, Description FROM win32_LogicalDisk where DriveType= 3

Thanks!

For you guys who are implementing this - what interval are you running?
I have it running every 6 hours watching 3 of our most critical servers, each with 3 logical disks (all VMs).

We intend on coming up with a chart to show trends for day/week/month.

How are you guys planning to use it?

I'm just going to use this to check some remote machines once a day for now, nothing mission critical.

Excellent article, Dave, and the timing couldn't be better as I have recently been tasked with producing Server availability reports, which I will use TempDB creation date for.

I had already done the first three steps when I found your article. Steps 4 and 5 are straightforward, but I ran into a snag with Step 6 - Building the Server Query Loop. You say to add a For each Loop Container to the data flow work area, but the only Foreach Loop Container I can find are in the control flow items.

I was using BIDS 2008 and thought perhaps things got changed, so I tried the same thing with BIDS 2005, but the FeLC is in the same place. What am I missing?

Using the FeLC in the Control Flow, I had some problems initially. I don't have a lot of SSIS experience yet, and it took a lot of poking and prodding to find that Ihadto click on the words "Foreach File Enumerator" to see the pull down list where I found "Foreach ADO Enumerator" which then gave me the ADO object source variable window where I foung User::ServerList to select, as well as the radio buttons to select Rows in the frist table.

But it remains in my Control flow tab, not my Data flow tab. I'll see what happens in Step 7.

Again thanks for a super article.

Sorry, your perfectly right, the FELC for step 6 should be on the control flow screen. Bit of a typo I'm afraid. If you get any other problems then let me know.
