Script to Alter File Growth

I recently inherited a large estate of SQL Servers. Over the years, before I started, it grew organically and was managed by an insufficient number of accidental DBAs. As a result many SQL server instances were built and left with their default settings.

One such setting is file growth, which, tends to be set either at a growth rate of 10% or 1MB. Given the number of databases that can be on a single server I wrote a little script to aid me in making the changes.

I realise that every server and database has different requirements. I am using this script to get my databases and servers to a basic level of "best practice" and avoid any performance issues that may arise.
