dba-database

This is my DBA database that contains my utility scripts that I use to help manage my servers.

Some of this code was never intended to be used by anyone else--it's primarily here for myself, but if you want to use it, make sure you know exactly what it's doing before using any of this code.

Some of this code (including the installer!) assumes that the First Responder Kit (firstresponderkit.org) and Ola Hallengren's SQL Server Maintenance Solution (ola.hallengren.com) are installed in the same database as well. PowerShell script provided to pull that stuff from it's respective download location. Redistributing other people's code isn't my thing.

To install

By default, the installer will create a database named DBA (if it doesn't already exist), and install all objects in that DBA database. You can deploy to a database named something other than DBA by using the -DatabaseName parameter on the install script. This install script assumes that you have permission to create the database, or that it already exists.

  • Clone this repo.
  • Open a PowerShell prompt & navigate (ie Set-Location) to the dba-database folder you just cloned.
  • Run Get-OpenSourceScripts.ps1 to grab the latest versions of the open source/third-party projects.
  • Also from dba-database folder, run Install-LatestDbaDatabase.ps1 -InstanceName "MyInstance"
    • By default, the installer will use DBA as the database name. To use a different database name, specify that using the -DatabaseName paramater.
    • The -InstanceName parameter will accept an array of server names, if you want to deploy to many servers.

If you experience issues with the install experience, please create an issue in GitHub.
