Very nice! I would optimize some things in the coding for large installations with hundreds of backups going on every hour (logs etc..) though. Example would be to the exclusion table and the "AND d.name NOT IN (SELECT db_name FROM dbautility.dbo.db_exclude)". Could be replaced with a JOIN logic and get the NOT out of there.

All in all I enjoyed reading it and I can see this benefiting quite a few DBAs out there. Thanks!

Good article, Backup Monitoring and Reporting

There is a mistake in it:

msdb.baclkupset -> msdb.backupset


Thank You

When I get execute the jobs I get the following error by starting the powershell script:

The statement has been terminated."

Try running update_server_dim_sp this wil update the server_dim.max_backupset_id column. Also keep in mind the primary key is defined as server_name and backup_set_id. The server name value is obtained from @@servername, so its possible to have duplicate names of your SQL Servers in your environment. Check @@servername on all servers you are polling and verify there are no duplicates.
