You could also use a free program like SpiceWorks which does this and a lot more...


Thanks, will try.

MAPS from Microsoft is the best way to record all such info in a database for you, plus a ncie report and excel spreadsheet.

In order to produce the inventory it scans the network and identifies SQL Server installs, versions, OS details, disk space etc etc.



Have you got a link for that?


MAPS full name is "Microsoft assessment and planning toolkit",
You can download it from "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=158988".
it will also install sql server express as a repository.

I just did a quick glance at the Ref URL above. Very cool... thanks for posting the link, Stanley.

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.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

I worked on a similar solution to collect Windows and SQL Server inventory by gathering scripts from your posts and other SQL Family and released it as a free tool at http://crazydba.com. The tool uses powershell to grab data from all servers and stores it in SQL tables and can be viewed using SSRS reports. Can you please check it and give me any suggestions to improve it?

Thnx

Hey there,

Can you try https://www.sqldockit.com/ and contact me if you like it? :-)
We have developed tool that you just deploy, click load and basically it discovers all the servers in your domain automagically. We had an issue in our own environment where we have several hunder servers, growing every day and that was getting out of control so we developed a tool to help us with that. And part of the tool we made free (for DEV and SQL express servers).
