Powershell Script to change data and log files that are growing by percent

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

This is the next step after finding all the files that are growing by percent and not by a fixed value. Below is the modified script to make the changes that I needed.

#### Check Log and Data Growth for all User Databases. If they are not set up correctly then change them to the correct setting.
$servers = invoke-sqlcmd -serverinstance server -database Database -query “select InstanceName, Port from instance where IsActive = 1”
$output = @()
foreach($instance in $servers)
{
$name = $instance.instancename
$port = $instance.port
$server = “$name,$port”
#echo “`n###########################

######”
#$server

$s = New-Object (‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server’) $server

$databases = $s.databases
#$databases | get-member | where {$_.membertype -eq “Property”}
foreach($database in $databases)
{
$dbsize = $database.size
$name = $database.name
## Check the log File
$logfiles = $database.logfiles
foreach($logfile in $logfiles)
{
$filename = $logfile.filename
$growth = $logfile.growth
$growthtype = $logfile.growthtype
$size = $logfile.size
if(($growthtype -eq “Percent”) -and ($name -ne “Master”) -and ($name -ne “Model”))
{
$logfile.growth = 65536
$logfile.growthtype = “kb”
$logfile.alter()

}
}
## Datafiles
$filegroups = $database.filegroups
foreach($group in $filegroups)
{
$files = $group.files
foreach($file in $files)
{
$filename = $file.filename
$type = $file.growthtype
$growth = $file.growth
$size = $file.size
if(($type -eq “Percent”) -and ($name -ne “Master”) -and ($name -ne “Model”))
{
if($dbsize -lt 10240)
{
$file.growth = 51200
$file.growthtype = “kb”
$file.alter()
}

if(($dbsize -gt 20480) -and ($dbsize -lt 51200))
{
$file.growth = 307200
$file.growthtype = “kb”
$file.alter()
}

if(($dbsize -gt 51200) -and ($dbsize -lt 102400))
{
$file.growth = 512000
$file.growthtype = “kb”
$file.alter()
}

if($dbsize -gt 102400)
{
$file.growth = 1048576
$file.growthtype = “kb”
$file.alter()
}

}
}
}
}
}

So you can see that this script is a bit more code, but I was able to make all the changes that I needed to all the log and all the data files and I was able to have the datafile growth depend on the current size of the database.
Hope this will help.

    how very cool. Exactly what I need.  Since I'm still new to Powershell though, I have a question about how I get it to find the servers and db's.  We have multiple servers with multiple db's. I see the first line for $servers.  Do I need to specify the server and database names in place of the server and database words on that line? Or, is there a way to specify each server name and let it find the databases as it looks like what this is trying to do?
