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...
sp_MSforeachdb_Except @command1= "BACKUP DATABASE ? TO DISK = N'\\servername\serverShareName\?.BAK' WITH INIT"
and backup all databases on a given server. For daily DBCCs...
sp_MSforeachdb_Except @command1= "PRINT ' ********* Database Maint On (?) *********' ", @command2= "DBCC CHECKDB (?) ", @command3= "DBCC NEWALLOC (?) ", @command4= "DBCC UPDATEUSAGE (?) ", @command5= "USE ? exec SP_UPDATESTATS"
