Validate Deployed Databases by Version

By William Talada,

How can you guarantee your customer database is exactly as you installed it last quarter? How can you be sure your upgrade completed perfectly? How can you immediately identify the object changes a customer has made to your database since the last release?

The attached Validator script may be created and executed as-is in AdventureWorks or any database for an immediate display of the objects and attributes it tracks. Right before deploying a database to a customer, spend ten minutes creating a custom version of Validator by embedding the results of eleven "selects" within it as per the instructions. Deploy the version specific ValidatorVnPn stored procedure with the database for the customer to use any time he has doubts.
