Exploring dbatools

Open-source, cross-platform dbatools is a PowerShell toolkit that reliably and consistently automates daily SQL DBA tasks. Boasting interactivity with many popular SQL Community tools, dbatools was designed by contributors from the SQL Server, PowerShell, and C# communities — the people who use it every day. With this free mini ebook, get a good look at how dbatools makes life less tedious and more productive for SQL DBAs and the Data Platform community.

Exploring dbatools features three chapters from Manning’s Learn dbatools in a Month of Lunches by Chrissy LeMaire, Rob Sewell, Jess Pomfret and Cláudio Silva. First, you’ll discover some dbatools commands that automate and simplify some of the most common dba tasks. Then, you’ll learn several ways to save data to every SQL Server DBA’s favorite place: a SQL Server database table. Lastly, you’ll discover how to find most, if not all, SQL Server instances on your network, using a single command. With dbatools, you’ll be performing in seconds the tasks that used to take hours. This free quick-start guide will get you started!
