Like PowerShell for SQL Server?

Check out my new Tool Time column in this month’s SQL Server Magazine. It features some great new PowerShell scripts and information from Chad Miller (blog) who I had the pleasure to meet in person back in October of this year while speaking at the SQL Server of central Florida and at SQL Saturday #21.

In addition, I’d like to point out a free utility called PowerGUI.  If you’re like me, the last thing you have time for is learning a new code like PowerShell.  So I copped out and got the next best alternative to real code, the fancy and pretty drag-n-drop interface of PowerGUI.  (Full disclosure: PowerGUI is made by Quest Software, my employer, but by an unrelated business unit.)  Notice that the hyperlink is to a .ORG website.  That’s because PowerGUI is not only free, it’s also community-supported.  There are tons of free scripts for all sorts of Windows-related technologies like Exchange, Active Directory, and of course SQL Server.  Give a look and let me know what you think of it.
