T-SQL Script to check Powershell Version

You can write $host command on powershell prompt to check powershell version or you can execute the below T-SQL script to check the powershell version.

declare @regkeyval varchar(20), @value varchar(255), @rc int
exec @rc=master.dbo.xp_regread 
  @rootkey= 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE',
  @key='SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\PowerShellEngine',

Script to list out SQL Logins and Database User Mappings

You can use system stored procedure sp_msloginmappings to list out the SQL logins and database user mappings.

Syntax
sp_msloginmappings @Loginname , @Flags

@Loginname – Optional argument, in case if you not specify the Login name procedure will return the result for all the SQL Server logins
@Flags – You can specify value 0 or 1, 0 value will show user mapping to all databases and 1 will show the user mapping to current database only. Default value is 0

use master
go
exec sp_msloginmappings 'sa', 0

use master
go
exec sp_msloginmappings 'sa', 1

In case you want to run the sp_msloginmappings across multiple SQL Instance using either Central management server or powershell. You can use the below script.

 create table #loginmappings(  
  LoginName  nvarchar(128) NULL,  
  DBName     nvarchar(128) NULL,  
  UserName   nvarchar(128) NULL,  
  AliasName  nvarchar(128) NULL  
 )  
 
 insert into #loginmappings
 EXEC master..sp_msloginmappings
 
 select * from #loginmappings
 
 drop table #loginmappings

How to restart an Interrupted Database Restore in SQL Server?

Steps to restart an Interrupted Database Restore in SQL Server

There may scenario when you are restoring VLDB database backup and the restore database command interrupted due network failure, power failure, SQL Server Service restart or cluster failover. In this kind of scenario you can easily start the interrupted restore from the point of failure using WITH RESTART command.

Before you start restoring the database using WITH RESTART option check database is in Restoring State not in any other state.

You can check the database state either from SSMS object explorer or by executing below T-SQL command

select name,state_desc from sys.databases

Once confirmed that database is in restoring state execute the backup command WITH RESTART clause

RESTORE DATABASE [AdventureWorks]
FROM DISK ='D:\Backup\AdventureWorks.bak'
WITH RESTART, STATS = 20
GO

T-SQL Script to check SQL Server Instance TCP/IP Port Number

SQL Server Error Log

-- Check the error log for port number
EXEC xp_ReadErrorLog 0, 1, N'Server is listening on', N'any', NULL, NULL, 'DESC'
GO

Executing DMV Script

-- you must connect remotely using TCP/IP
SELECT local_tcp_port
FROM   sys.dm_exec_connections
WHERE  session_id = @@SPID
GO

For Dynamic Port Number
— Read the registry for port number

-- Execute below script if SQL Server is configured with dynamic port number
DECLARE       @portNo   NVARCHAR(10)
 
EXEC   xp_instance_regread
@rootkey    = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE',
@key        =
'Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp\IpAll',
@value_name = 'TcpDynamicPorts',
@value      = @portNo OUTPUT
 
SELECT [PortNumber] = @portNo
GO

For Static Port Number

-- Execute below script if SQL Server is configured with static port number
DECLARE       @portNo   NVARCHAR(10)
 
EXEC   xp_instance_regread
@rootkey    = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE',
@key        =
'Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp\IpAll',
@value_name = 'TcpPort',
@value      = @portNo OUTPUT
 
SELECT [PortNumber] = @portNo
GO

Powershell – To check the Drive and Disk Space Information

To get the disk space details of the server, simply go to command prompt and paste the below script it will give you disk space details.

powershell -command "& {Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_LogicalDisk -Filter 'DriveType = 3' |select PSComputerName, Caption,@{N='Capacity_GB'; E={[math]::Round(($_.Size / 1GB), 2)}},@{N='FreeSpace_GB'; E={[math]::Round(($_.FreeSpace / 1GB), 2)}},@{N='PercentUsed'; E={[math]::Round(((($_.Size - $_.FreeSpace) / $_.Size) * 100), 2) }},@{N='PercentFree'; E={[math]::Round((($_.FreeSpace / $_.Size) * 100), 2) }}}"

Sample Output
Caption : C:
Capacity_GB : 283.44
FreeSpace_GB : 51.48
PercentUsed : 81.84
PercentFree : 18.16
