SQL Script to find database details

Sometimes we need a SQL Script which can give the below information about the databases created on a SQL Server for house keeping purpose: -1) Database Name
2) Database ID
3) Database Files name with their physical location
4) Database Creation Time
5) Users access type for Database
6) Database recovery model
7) Database State (ON/OFF)
8) Database Collation
9) File size on the Disk

Following SQL Query will help you in finding the above mentioned information for all databases on a SQL Server

sd.[Name] AS [database Name]
,sd.database_id [Database Id]
,mf.name as [File Logical Name]
when type_desc = ‘LOG’ then ‘Log File’
when type_desc = ‘ROWS’ then ‘Data File’
Else type_desc
end as [File type]
,mf.physical_name [Physical Location]
,sd.create_date [Database Creation date]
,sd.collation_name [collation name]
,sd.user_access_desc [User Access Type]
,sd.recovery_model_desc [Database Recovery Model]
,sd.state_desc [Database State]
,size_on_disk_bytes [File Size in bytes]
,size_on_disk_bytes/ 1024 as [File Size in KB]
,size_on_disk_bytes/ 1024 / 1024 as [File Size in MB]
FROM sys.dm_io_virtual_file_stats(NULL, NULL) AS fs
inner join sys.databases sd on fs.database_id=sd.database_id
JOIN sys.master_files AS mf ON mf.database_id = fs.database_id
AND mf.file_id = fs.file_id
ORDER BY sd.database_id
