Trace Flag 834 And Columnstore

Chris Bell warns us against having Trace Flag 834 turned on in an instance which contains columnstore indexes:

[I]t is not recommended to have trace flag 834 on when using columnstore indexes in your databases.

Since the 834 trace flag is a global level flag, and columnstores are in individual databases I wrote the script below to go through and check if you ave any columnstore indexes, and then check if the trace flag is enabled.

Chris also has a helpful script to see if your instance has this issue.
