Hi

I have been placed at client side which has 60+ live production server.I want some mechanism through which we can monitor servers.Second i want some mechanism through which a daily report is made/mailed through which we can have various parameters such as database size,disk space job status etc.

Please suggest how to proceed ahead with daily report part.

We can have any product from market as we donot have rights

Thanks and regards
Anoop

If you're going to set this up yourself, then I agree, Central Management Server is the way to go. There's plenty of documentation on that in the Books Online.


Hi grant can you provide links or links with egamples.


I don't have an article that I've written on monitoring through Central Management Servers. I do have one I wrote on using them to manage backups. Here's the starting point for these in the Books Online.

I've never used or seen CyberArk so I can't comment on that.

Here are a few links to get you started:

Here are three links to PowerShell scripts that do this work in various methods. A Google search of "powershell sql server inventory" brings up quite a few links. Do like I did and take some from here and some from there to create your own that serves your exact needs. It's not hard to do, but may take a bit of time -- not nearly as much time as doing the inventory by hand though.
