There has to be a documentation for CMS.  This application related more than database related.

CMS is related to Database. I'm talking about central management server, which comes with SQL.

Sorry I thought CMS stood for Content Management Server.  Sorry, I have never used Central Management Feature. My guess is the usage is stored in msdb but I hope somebody will confirm.  In this case, backing up / restoring msdb database should help migrate but I am not sure where content is stored.

I believe it's doesn't store in msdb. When create a temp variable, it stored in a each corresponding server.

Hi,

Are you talking about multi-server queries, where you can select node on the CMS Tree in Registered Servers etc.

I think that the queries are managed by SSMS rather than by the database engine, so I don't believe that results can be stored in a database.

Hi

I couldn't find how to do this myself, so my workaround was a power shell script with list of servers in a table. Results stored in a table.

You can't just store results from a query in a table.

Only way is if all servers in node have same linked server, pointing to same server, then multi-server query can be an insert.

Does anyone have tried this? Is there any other work around solution in SSMS?
Apart setting up the linked server?

Hi,

When using SSMS you have 3 destinations for the results - text/grid/file.

On a single server you can write a select into query. You can run this query from SSMS/SQLCMD ... a bunch of places. The insert is not dependant on the query tool. The results still come back to a text/grid/file destination.

When using SSMS to issue a multi-server query, the results come back to a text/grid/file destination.

If every server you query has a linked server pointing to server and a database blah, then you could write

insert server.blah.dbo.SomeTableName( columns ... )
select
  columns
from dbo.someSourceTable
where
  somewherecondition.

So what I've written here is a generic insert statement that explicitly states which server to store the results in, that could run from SSMS/SQLCMD ... has nothing multi-server about it.

But there is the overhead of maintaining all the links etc.

I suggest a different approach: Write a vbscript/powershell script that queries each server in turn and stores the results in a central server/database/table

Here is key snippet from my powershell script. Its a little messy as it has the logic to select the server name from a table of SQL Instances, but you should get the idea.

Regards
  David

foreach( $s in Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query ‘select distinct ss.FQDN as ServerName from dbo.SQLServer ss where isWMIWorking = 1 and ( DateDecommissioned is null or DateDecommissioned > dateadd( day, datediff( day, 0, getdate()), 0 ))’ -Database _dba -ServerInstance aadrdb0012\mtdata_test ) {
    $d = Get-WmiObject -computername ( $s.ServerName ) Win32_LogicalDisk -filter "DriveType=3" | foreach { 
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty UsageDT $((Get-Date).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")) 
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty SizeGB $([math]::round(($_.Size/1GB),2)) 
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty UsedGB $([math]::round((($_.Size - $_.FreeSpace ) /1GB ), 2 ))
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty FreeGB $([math]::round(($_.FreeSpace/1GB),2)) 
        add-member -in $_ -membertype noteproperty PercentUsed $([math]::round(((1 - [float]$_.FreeSpace/[float]$_.Size) * 100),2)) -passThru 
        } | Select UsageDT, SystemName, Caption, VolumeName, SizeGB, UsedGB, FreeGB, PercentUsed
