CTP3 of SQL Denali is finally publicly available!
I woke up at 5 am this morning to kick off my download. I’ve finished the install and I’m happy that I can finally report that we have new cmdlets for SQL Server.
First off, after running Get-Module -ListAvailable I saw:
This means that SQLPS inside of SQL Agent should finally allow you to import a module during your job step.
There is now a Function called SQLServer that, from what I can tell, is the SQLServer Provider. When under PS SQLSERVER:\> if you do a dir | Select pschildname you will find the following list:
From my notes it looks like XEvent, IntegrationServices, and SQLAS are the directories that have been added here. Can’t wait to try out the IntegrationServices portion! [Update]: Apparently I may need a defaul instance install for this to work.
I also noticed that Tab-Completion appears to be fixed!! 🙂 Also, SQL Registrations > ‘Database Engine Server Group’ are split up into instances like CMS was. Not sure what that’s all about just yet. In fact when I try to use it, it doesn’t seem to work. Maybe I should read the help files. But I think they may have just gotten CMS & RS reversed. CMS isn’t working for me either yet.
When you drill down under XEvents and go to your Denali instaince you will see: Packages, & Sessions. I guess this means that I finally need to read Jonathat’s blog series on X-Events.
When I imported the SQLPS module I received a warning about unapproved verbs. Oh well, hopefully they’ll work that out soon. Next I ran Get-Command -Module “SQLPS” and found the following list of cmdlets.
Analysis Services got some love too in the form of 11 cmdlets! After inporting the SQLASCMDLETS module I ran this Get-Command -Module “SQLASCMDLETS” and found the following.
More news to follow soon!
