SQL Undercover Inspector 1.2 Released

Adrian Buckman announces a new version of SQL Undercover Inspector:

#21 Added AG Databases check to warn on databases not joined to an AG 

If you are using Availability groups and you have this new module enabled the Inspector will assume that all databases should be joined to an AG, every database name for the instance is inserted into a new table called [Inspector].[AGDatabases] and the Is_AG flag is set to a 1 , if databases are joined to an AG then the Is_AGJoined column is set to a 1 therefore no Advisory will be shown on the report. If a database is marked as Is_AG then it will continue to warn if not joined to an AG on the Inspector reports, if you wish to exclude a given database from the advisory condition simply update Is_AG to a 0 .

Instances that are not Hadr enabled with at least one AG will automatically have Is_AG set to 0 and will be excluded from the checking even if the module is enabled.
