PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language built on .NET. PowerShell helps system administrators and power-users rapidly automate tasks that manage operating systems and processes.

Powershell can be used to automate many common Aeries DBA tasks.

Below are some common powershell prerequisites to assist in exporting data;

You will have to run under SQLPS (SQL PowerShell extensions which will be on a typical SQL server or you must install SQL feature pack files...)

SQL Server 2016 Feature Pack (newest available connects to down level servers just fine)

1. ENU\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi

2. ENU\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi

3. ENU\x64\PowerShellTools.msi

Open Powershell ISE as Administrator.

Run the following command;

Import-module SQLPS

SSIS Packages:

SSIS is a platform for data integration and workflow applications. It features a data warehousing tool used for data extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL). The tool may also be used to automate maintenance of SQL Server databases and update data.
