SQL Server Version with Powershell

03 July,2011 by Tom Collins

SQL Server Version with Powershell and documenting SQL Server versions, is a necessary timesaving methods . For instance , I'm upgrading loads of sql servers at the moment and the following script , gives me a quick way of getting a summary of versions. Place all the relevant servers into a file , such as "C:\servers.txt" , just place them on separate lines.

An example of the lists in that document is:


Keep in mind, you will need to have  Allow Remote Connections enabled

To run , copy and paste straight into a Powershell cmdlet ,which is a series of commands, usually more than one line, stored in a text file with a .ps1 extension.

foreach ($svr in get-content "C:\Servers.txt"){
    $dt = new-object "System.Data.DataTable"
    $cn = new-object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection "server=$svr;database=master;Integrated Security=sspi"
    $sql = $cn.CreateCommand()
    $sql.CommandText = "SELECT @@SERVERNAME AS ServerName, SERVERPROPERTY('ProductVersion') AS Version, SERVERPROPERTY('ProductLevel') as SP"
    $rdr = $sql.ExecuteReader()
    $dt | Format-Table -autosize
