Script to View Server's Free HD Space

By gvinuezaprincipal,

This VBScript script lets you display the available disk space in each one of your administered DB servers.

You have to call it with ONE argument: the filename of an archive that contains a list of known servers over which you have administration permissions. 

If you program VBScript, you can put alarms when any drive goes under certain number (see the Limite variable).

The idea is to generate the results to a text file.  I use the script in this way:

"C:\scripts\>cscript sqlhd.vbs server.txt > serverHD.txt"

Server.txt will have the form:


The report would have the form:

Available Hard Disk Report
C:[1181] E:[655]

C:[300]<==ALERT! E:[655]
