Ive been trying to find a powershell script that can execute using a server list as a txt file.
Loop dbcc checkdb on all databases per the server list
If possible output the results of the dbcc to an excel file written to the local c drive of the server

Anyone come up with the code for this ?

Thanks

Mo

$ScriptName = $myInvocation.MyCommand.Name
[void][reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Data.SqlClient")
$ConnString = "Server=DB-OCC05;Integrated Security=SSPI;Database=master;Application Name=$ScriptName"
$MasterConn = new-object ('System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection') $ConnString
$MasterCmd = new-object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand 
$MasterCmd.Connection = $MasterConn
$SqlDBCC = "DBCC CHECKDB(master) WITH TABLERESULTS"
$MasterCmd.CommandText = $SqlDBCC
$MasterConn.Open()
$Rset = $MasterCmd.ExecuteReader()
If ($Rset.HasRows -eq $true) {
    While ($Rset.Read()) {
        $line = $Rset["MessageText"]
        If ($Rset["Level"] -gt 10) {
            Write-Host $line -backgroundcolor Yellow -foregroundcolor Red
        } else {
            Write-Host $line 
        }
    }
    $Rset.Close()
}
$MasterConn.Close()

Thanks for link - but I wanted to PS to do the dbcc itself.

Ive found the following code above which works provided you have specified the server name and databases.

Could someone provide a script that allows this code to read a server.txt file with list of server names - and that it runs against all databases when its run automatically.

And finally if it could output to a csv file the results of the DBCC's.

Thanks

Look into using invoke-sqlcmd


http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281720.aspx

e.g.
Invoke-Sqlcmd "SELECT GETDATE() AS TimeOfQuery;" -ServerInstance "MyComputer\MyInstance"


you can feed in your server name and instance:

gc serverlist.txt | foreach-object {Invoke-Sqlcmd "DBCC xxx;" -ServerInstance "$_\MyInstance"}

Hmm

Im not great on PS - and hence my question about a working answer...
However I tried as a test the following line from a powershell window directly

Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query "SELECT GETDATE() AS TimeOfQuery;" -ServerInstance "MyComputer\MyInstance"

And get error
The term 'Invoke-Sqlcmd' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path
 was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:14

Also tried
gc "C:\Powershell\Servers_2008.txt" | foreach-object {Invoke-Sqlcmd "DBCC checkdb;" -ServerInstance "$_\MyInstance"}
And same error....

Thanks for the link - unfortunately the powershell environment for running these sort of checks is on a SQL 2005.

I wont be able to get this policy changed.

Is there any other way of doing this not using invoke ?

I have managed to get help from another forum and get a working piece of code which is attached

Still willing to give out the points for anyone who can help output the dbcc results to a csv file
thought something like this.
{Export-Csv "c:\powershell\DBCC\$messageText_DBCC.csv"}  ???

Let me be clear please if you could post the working code..

Otherwise I will close the call

function Execute-DBCC
{
    param (
        [parameter(Mandatory = $true)][string]$serverInstance
    )
    $connString = "Server=$serverInstance;Integrated  Security=SSPI;Database=master;Application Name=$ScriptName"
    $masterConn = new-object ('System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection') $connString
    $masterCmd = new-object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand 
    $masterCmd.Connection = $masterConn

    $masterCmd.CommandText = "EXECUTE master.sys.sp_MSforeachdb 'DBCC CHECKDB([?]) WITH TABLERESULTS'"
    $masterConn.Open()
    $reader = $masterCmd.ExecuteReader()

    if ($reader.HasRows -eq $true) 
    {
        while ($reader.Read()) 
        {
            $messageText = $reader["MessageText"]

            if ($reader["Level"] -gt 10) 
                { Write-Host $messageText -backgroundcolor Yellow -foregroundcolor Red  } 
            else 
                { Write-Host $messageText  }
        }
        $reader.Close()
    }
    $masterConn.Close() 
}
[void][reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Data.SqlClient")
$servers = @(Get-Content ".\servers.txt")
$servers | %{
    Execute-DBCC $_
}

Check out the pipe (|) operator to do this.
