Using a csv file DBLIST_ACTIONS.csv with list of databases where you can launch multiple different database operations in parallel</p> <p>Some lines of the configuration file DBLIST_ACTIONS.csv used shown below: SERVERNAME,DBNAME1,SOURCESERVER,DATAFOLDER,LOGFOLDER,DBNAME2,ACTIONS,ENABLED (local)\sql2014,AdventureWorks2012,C:\SQL2014\BACKUPS,C:\SQL2014\DATA,C:\SQL2014\LOG,AdventureWorks_COPY1,RESTOREDBS1.CFG,Y (local)\sql2014,AdventureWorks2012,C:\SQL2014\BACKUPS,C:\SQL2014\DATA,C:\SQL2014\LOG,AdventureWorks_COPY2,RESTOREDBS1.CFG,Y (local)\sql2014,AdventureWorks2012,C:\SQL2014\BACKUPS,C:\SQL2014\DATA,C:\SQL2014\LOG,AdventureWorks_COPY3,RESTOREDBS1.CFG,Y (local)\sql2014,AdventureWorks2012,C:\SQL2014\BACKUPS,C:\SQL2014\DATA,C:\SQL2014\LOG,AdventureWorks_COPY4,RESTOREDBS1.CFG,</p> <p>Where: SERVERNAME: server where the database to act upon resides</p> <p>DBNAME1: source database</p> <p>DBNAME2: destination database (may be different from source when we restore a copy with a different name)</p> <p>SOURCESERVER: this is the network (or local) folder where backups are placed</p> <p>DATAFOLDER: folder for data files</p> <p>LOGFOLDER: folder for log files</p> <p>ACTIONS: this is the name of the configuration file (.CFG) with the list of actions</p> <p>ENABLED: a Y value here will mean we want to process the line</p> <p>For each line (database) you specify a configuration file (in this case RESTOREDBS1.CFG), see sample below: (one line for each, no blank lines)</p> <p>RESTORE DATABASE</p> <p>SET DBOWNER: sa</p> <p>SYNC LOGINS</p> <p>SET SIMPLE MODE</p> <p>SHRINK LOG</p> <p>The program will process each line in the source CSV file and for each one it will perform the set of operations described in the configuration file. This system is being used in my workplace with different configuration files for different databases (there are configuration files for restores, specific restores with more actions, backups, etc, not included here for brevity).</p> <p>Every time you do a database task you just add a line in the DBLIST_ACTIONS.CSV and create (if needed) a configuration file). If you are going to actually use it include a "Y" in the ENABLED column Note: every line action in the configuration file must have been implemented in the function ActionParsing as one the entries in the big if statement.</p> <p>Special features: You can specify at the start of the program if you want to really execute or not. You may want to do first a trial run setting NOEXECUTE_OPTION = 1 (instead of the default of 0). In this case the program will run and create the SQL script of the operations, not executing them. Note: it has been implemented in the restores so far, will add it to the other options later.</p> <p>Threading: by default it will run as many threads as lines in the DBLIST_ACTIONS.CSV file. But you can change this option by setting a value to THREAD_POOL different than 0. </p> Python SQLSMO (Python) 2015-03-28T16:58:11-07:00Jorge Besadahttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/100038/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578977-python-sqlsmo/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 578977 by <a href="/recipes/users/100038/">Jorge Besada</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/database/">database</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/python/">python</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/smo/">smo</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/sql/">sql</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/sqlsmo/">sqlsmo</a>). Revision 15. </p> <p>I needed a Python library equivalent to the SQL Server Management Objects (SMO) and did not find it, so I created my own version. It does not follow the standard SMO objects names. So far it has a set of basic functionality: to make backups, restores with move, sync logins for restored databases, check disk space. I included a good sized testing harness to get you going. This version uses sqlcmd for connectivity. I use this SQLSMO library as an imported module in several of my Python applications. It has been tested with SQL 2012 and SQL 2014, it should function with versions down to 2005.</p> Printing list of ODBC data sources with pyodbc module (Python) 2014-01-28T10:40:56-08:00Michal Niklashttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/186902/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578815-printing-list-of-odbc-data-sources-with-pyodbc-mod/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 578815 by <a href="/recipes/users/186902/">Michal Niklas</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/database/">database</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/odbc/">odbc</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/sql/">sql</a>). </p> <p>I have similar recipe but with <code>odbc</code> module: <a href="http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578782-printing-list-of-odbc-data-sources/" rel="nofollow">http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578782-printing-list-of-odbc-data-sources/</a></p> Printing list of ODBC data sources (Python) 2013-12-10T11:07:37-08:00Michal Niklashttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/186902/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578782-printing-list-of-odbc-data-sources/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 578782 by <a href="/recipes/users/186902/">Michal Niklas</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/database/">database</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/odbc/">odbc</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/sql/">sql</a>). </p> <p>This simple code shows ODBC data sources.
