Powershell One Liners: Get status of SQL Instances on All SQL Servers

SQLPals, 2018-10-08

# Assuming you have list of servers in servers.txt, each sever name in its own line

$ComputerNames = getcontent servers.txt

GetWmiObject Query “select * from win32_service where PathName like ‘%%sqlservr.exe%%'”  ComputerName $ComputerNames | ft Property PSComputerName, @{Name = “ServiceName”; Expression = ‘Name’}, PathName, ExitCode, ProcessID, StartMode, State, Status

# To export the output into an excel/csv, just add “export-csv <filename.csv>” at the end..
GetWmiObject Query “select * from win32_service where PathName like ‘%%sqlservr.exe%%'”  ComputerName $ComputerNames | ft Property PSComputerName, @{Name = “ServiceName”; Expression = ‘Name’}, PathName, ExitCode, ProcessID, StartMode, State, Status | export-csv SQLInstancesStatus.csv






PS: Or, to make this a true one-liner, embed the get-content cmdlet inside rounded brackets



GetWmiObject Query “select * from win32_service where PathName like ‘%%sqlservr.exe%%'”  ComputerName (getcontent servers.txt) | ft Property PSComputerName, @{Name = “ServiceName”; Expression = ‘Name’}, PathName, ExitCode, ProcessID, StartMode, State, Status

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
