SQL Server Database Backup Status

,

Database backups are a requirement for all DBA's. Restoring a backup consists of restoring the Last Full Backup and then the subsequent transaction logs.

 

We call this script twice a day via a Maintenance plan. It shoots out a neatly formatted HTML email to the Database Admins, listing the databases on the server and for Each Database The Last Full Backup and the subsequent Transaction Log backups.

 

We find this extremely helpful and reassuring.

 

Please feel free to use/review/recode/LearnFrom this script. Just give credit where credits due and ofcourse if you do make changes to the script whether to increase functionality/efficiency please do send me a copy so that I may also use/review/recode/LearnFrom your script

 

(I Have just replaced the original script after stripping away all tabs. For some reason when these were present they were showing up as control characters in the published script)
