We use RedGate backup tool in our environment to backup giant databases. Our entire team has permissions to install the tool on the servers they are responsible for. When the license limit is reached, the activation fails. So far so good. But it becomes a nightmare for me to find out where it is installed and more important, licensed. I can run this query in SSMS on a SQL Server group of servers to find out if the tool is installed:
SELECT NAME FROM MASTER..sysobjects WHERE NAME LIKE '%sqlbackup%'
and it gives me, say, 20 servers. But how to know if all those 20 are licensed or trial versions?
I don't want to RDP into every server to find this out. Thru command line, registry read or sql query would be the desired solution.
