I have a scenario where our DBAs and Server team planned for Maintenance, tonight.
We have more than 800 servers that are to be rebooted.
Is there any way, I can check the status of SQL Server and Agent Services, 'running', 'stopped', 'disabled', 'manual', 'if clustered', 'time started' on all multiple servers at a time ?

I would like to have a script towards it, if I can provide a servers list into text and then the output pumped to text or excel file.

Please help and thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Found something, but only for one and it is also not accurate.. Any help is appreciated.


$servers=get-content "D:\instances.txt"
foreach($server in $servers)
{ get-wmiobject win32_service -computername $server |
select name,state |
where {
($_.name -like "SQLAGENT*" -or $_.name -like "SQL*AGENT" ) `
-and $_.state -match "Stopped"} | Out-String

}

any help is appreciated..

the below script gives report to only one machine twice when it is ran through VM.
List of servers are not getting used for checking.

why script not trying next server names in the list other than local instance.
it results for local machine only. I would like to pull details of
1. SQL Server & SQL Server Agent services, started and stopped.
2. If stopped, start them automatically.
3. again check for status.

I am trying for 3 steps handy and verified after maintenance..

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#create final results to export
$results = @()
# Defining output format for each column.
$fmtName =@{label="Service Name" ;alignment="left" ;width=30 ;Expression={$_.Name};};
$fmtMode =@{label="Start Mode" ;alignment="left" ;width=10 ;Expression={$_.StartMode};};
$fmtState =@{label="State" ;alignment="left" ;width=10 ;Expression={$_.State};};
$fmtStatus =@{label="Status" ;alignment="left" ;width=10 ;Expression={$_.Status};};
$fmtMsg =@{label="Message" ;alignment="left" ;width=50 ; `
Expression={ if (($_.StartMode -eq "Auto") -and ($_.State -ne "Running") ) {"Alarm: Stopped"} };};

foreach ($svr in Get-Content "C:\SQLinstances.txt")
{
$srvc = Get-WmiObject `
-query "SELECT *
FROM win32_service
WHERE name LIKE '%SQL%'
OR name LIKE '%MSOLAP%'
OR name LIKE '%ReportServer%'
OR name LIKE '%MSDtsServer%'" `
-computername $server `
| Sort-Object -property name;

Write-Output ("Server: {0}" -f $server);
Write-Output $srvc | Format-Table $fmtName, $fmtMode, $fmtState, $fmtStatus, $fmtMsg;
}

$results | Export-Csv -Path C:\results.csv

Hi,

have you kept the firewall settings in mind. Have you allowed the remote powershell ports?
http://blogs.technet.com/b/christwe/archive/2012/06/20/what-port-does-powershell-remoting-use.aspx

Another possibility to check the running server:
You can use the Registered Servers feature of the SSMS. Generate a serverlist to import and start a new query. All server without connection would be listed in the messages window.

Kind regards,

yes we are using Powershell already for all the machines.
But I am to trying to get this done by SQL Queries.

Is there any way to add all the servers to "Central Management Servers".

One by one registering will take long time for me to register lot number of SQL servers.

Hi,

With registered Servers it could be ok. Add two Server to the registered Server, Export it and try to generate the XML with select on the Server list. And Then try Import it.

Kind regards,

Thanks Patrick for your time.

Adding 800+ servers to "Central Management Servers" is a big problem and in manual.
Any automation for this to register.

Here'a a couple of what sounds like a decent tool I found in 10 minutes using my assistant DBA, Google. :-P

I like this first one the most because I can call Powershell from xp_CmdShell (captures the result set directly) or just run Powershell separately and pipe the output to an importable file.

http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2013/find-sql-server-instances-across-your-network-using-windows-powershell/

Here's another that goes above and beyond.

MAP (Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit) (from the links above) supposedly makes a spreadsheet and a word document with all the goodies you might care to lookup.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

This should do what you need. If it doesn't work, I wonder if there may be some firewall policy or server security blocking you.


gwmi win32_service -comp (gc servers.txt) |

select __server,name,startmode,state,status
