Early on when I started working on the SQL Servers at Stack Overflow, we were taking daily backups. We had a handful of databases that were being restored for other processes, but the majority weren’t actively tested to ensure the backups were good. Since you never want to be in a situation where you need to restore a database and find it doesn’t work, my goal was to create a process to automatically restore our backups to a separate server, and then run
DBCC CHECKDBon it.
This is a T-SQL-driven process and I appreciate that. If you want a Powershell-driven process, Kevin Hill has you covered.
