Use Powershell to File Share in SQL


This a SQL script that allows you to use Powershell to script objects out of a database and to a file share.

$Filepath='' # local directory to save build-scripts to
$DataSource='' # server name and instance
$Database=''# the database to copy from
# set "Option Explicit" to catch subtle errors
set-psdebug -strict
$ErrorActionPreference = "stop" # you can opt to stagger on, bleeding, if an error occurs
# Load SMO assembly, and if we're running SQL 2008 DLLs load the SMOExtended and SQLWMIManagement libraries
$v = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName( "$ms.SMO")
if ((($v.FullName.Split(','))[1].Split('='))[1].Split('.')[0] -ne '9') {
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("$ms.SMOExtended") | out-null
$My="$ms.Management.Smo" #
$s = new-object ("$My.Server") $DataSource
if ($s.Version -eq  $null ){Throw "Can't find the instance $Datasource"}
$db= $s.Databases[$Database] 
if ($ -ne $Database){Throw "Can't find the database '$Database' in $Datasource"};
$transfer = new-object ("$My.Transfer") $db
$transfer.Options.ScriptBatchTerminator = $true # this only goes to the file
$transfer.Options.ToFileOnly = $true # this only goes to the file
$transfer.Options.Filename = "$($FilePath)\$($Database)_Build.sql"; 
"All done"
