I want to get a list of all of the user databases from an mssql server instance. What's the best way to do this?
I know I can select from sys.databases, but I don't see any way to filter out system databases besides hardcoding a list of names to exclude.
I need the script to work on 2000/2005 and 2008.
If the approach I listed above is the only way to go, what are list of names I should exclude? I don't know if 2005 or 2008 added any new system databases off the top of my head.
