What is SQL Server Utility?

SSEUtil is a tool that lets you interact with SQL Server. It allows you to:

  • Connect to the main instance or user-instance of SQL Server.
  • Create, attach, detach, and list databases on the server
  • Upgrade database files to match the version of the server
  • Execute SQL statements via the console (similar to SQLCMD)
  • Retrieve the version of SQL Server running
  • Enable and disable trace flags (for example, to trace SQL statements sent to the server by any client application)
  • List the instances of SQL Server on the local machine or on remote machines
  • Checkpoint and shrink a database
  • Measure the performance of executing specific queries
  • Create and playback lists of SQL commands for the server to execute
  • Log all input and output
