AWS DMS - primary key verification


Hi there, I am planning to migrate our on-prem SQL Server to RDS SQL Server. Unfortunately, this db was managed by several people and we are not sure that all of the tables have a primary key. I wish to keep the on-prem db and RDS in sync for a couple of days, so I have to be 100% sure that all tables have a primary key. Do you know an automatic way, where I can check if all the tables (1000+) have a primary key? Cheers, Mark

This little snippet will tell you whether a table has a primary key or not - SELECT OBJECTPROPERTY(OBJECT_ID(N'TabA'),'TableHasPrimaryKey')

Returns 0 if no primary key, Returns 1 if there is a primary key.

Now all that's left is to get the list of all your tables from the INFORMATION_SCHEMA -

Hello, You may use the SQL Server diagnostic support script, which will list down all possible issues in replication.
