Cleaning User Stuff from the master Database

Garbage

This is an upgrade to a script I wrote a long time ago. It's handy when you find a system whose master database is somehow full of user objects. (I know that none of us ever make that mistake...)

The biggest improvement is that this script now only generates DROP statement, it doesn't execute them. You have to do that yourself, and you should be sure to back up your master database (you do that on a regular basis anyway, right?), and be darn sure to read all the comments, and of course examine the generated T-SQL code, before executing it. Use at your own risk!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- Drops all user objects that have been accidentally created in 'master'.     
-- This script erases everything in the master database that is not Microsoft- 
-- shipped.  HOWEVER, be careful: some user objects BELONG in the master       
-- database (database triggers, security objects, for example). Backing up the 
-- master database first would be a prudent step.  Use at your own risk.       
-- NOTE: This script only generates the T-SQL code required.  You have to copy 
-- it and do the actual execution yourself.  You may have to run this script   
-- several times due to dependencies; you may also get error messages about    
-- objects that cannot be found, also due to dependencies.

Hi
Nice script, im going to try it out on a couple of older instances that had too many owners along the way.

Will have to change it to support different schema though.
