SQL Scripts & Samples

Posted Sep 28, 2001

By Staff

I have taken an existing stored procedure from Microsoft, sp_MSforeachdb, and modified it to exclude databases I do not wish to use for DBCC or Backup purposes. I also modified the sp_MSforeach_worker and added additional @command lines to execute more DBCC commands.

This allows me to execute a one line statement to backup all DATABASE or perform DBCC on all databases with the exception of i.e. (northwind, pubs, tempdb) or add any other exceptions I need.

So, for backups...

@command1=  "BACKUP DATABASE ? TO DISK = 
    N'\\servername\serverShareName\?.BAK' WITH INIT"

and backup all databases on a given server. For daily DBCCs...

@command1=  "PRINT  ' ********* Database Maint  On (?) *********' ",
@command2= "DBCC CHECKDB (?) ",
@command3= "DBCC NEWALLOC (?) ",
@command4= "DBCC UPDATEUSAGE (?) ",
@command5= "USE ?  exec SP_UPDATESTATS"
