This module is a SQL Server Pro's best friend.
The dbatools project initially started out as Start-SqlMigration.ps1, but has now grown into a collection of over 250 commands that help automate SQL Server tasks and encourage best practices.
There's also nearly 800 of us on the SQL Server Community Slack in the #dbatools channel. Need an invite? Check out the self-invite page. Drop by if you'd like to chat about dbatools or even join the team!
This module is now in the PowerShell Gallery. Run the following from an administrative prompt to install:
Or if you don't have a version of PowerShell that supports the Gallery, you can install it manually:
Invoke-Expression (Invoke-WebRequest https://dbatools.io/in)
dbatools.io is awesome
This module has been documented in its entirety pretty much, using Markdown, at dbatools.io. Please go visit there, it's pretty.
We're preparing for our 1.0 release and will offer more documentation once it's complete. Sorry the getting started is lacking at the moment - we're working on it!
