Find When Server Restarted Using TSQL

You can see when the Server was last rebooted by running a single script.

exec master..xp_cmdshell ‘systeminfo’

If you find an error; then you may need to enable this through sp_configure in which case you can run the following:

exec sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, ‘1’; reconfigure; sp_configure ‘xp_cmdshell’, ‘1’; reconfigure;

Your output should be similar to this. Additionally; you’ll see ALL the OS System Information
