Release Notes


One of the best practices for maintaining a SharePoint farm is to periodically check and verify that we have daily or weekly (depending on your organization requirements) backups of all of your content databases. If you have a lot of content databases it might be hard to do that manually using SQL Management studio unless you use a script.


Here we introduce a PowerShell script that will connect to your database server remotely and list all the databases you have access to with their latest full backup date.

How to run the script?

This PowerShell script can be executed from any machine that has PowerShell script support and have access to the Database server. Open the ps1 file and modify the value supplied to the switch "-SQLServer" at the very bottom of the file to point to your SQLServer Instance. Here is an example:
  • global:Get-DbBackupStatus -SQLServer "SQLPROD01\SP_INSTANCE"
