PowerShell script to convert a SQL CLR DLL assembly to a hex string for direct import into SQL.

# Target file
$assemblyFile = "c:\temp\cmd_exec.dll"

# Build top of TSQL CREATE ASSEMBLY statement
$stringBuilder = New-Object -Type System.Text.StringBuilder
$stringBuilder.Append("CREATE ASSEMBLY [my_assembly] AUTHORIZATION [dbo] FROM `n0x") | Out-Null

# Read bytes from file
$fileStream = [IO.File]::OpenRead($assemblyFile)
while (($byte = $fileStream.ReadByte()) -gt -1) {
    $stringBuilder.Append($byte.ToString("X2")) | Out-Null
}

# Build bottom of TSQL CREATE ASSEMBLY statement
$stringBuilder.AppendLine("`nWITH PERMISSION_SET = UNSAFE") | Out-Null
$stringBuilder.AppendLine("GO") | Out-Null
$stringBuilder.AppendLine(" ") | Out-Null

# Build create procedure command
$stringBuilder.AppendLine("CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[cmd_exec] @execCommand NVARCHAR (4000) AS EXTERNAL NAME [my_assembly].[StoredProcedures].[cmd_exec];") | Out-Null
$stringBuilder.AppendLine("GO") | Out-Null
$stringBuilder.AppendLine(" ") | Out-Null

# Create run os command
$stringBuilder.AppendLine("EXEC[dbo].[cmd_exec] 'whoami'") | Out-Null
$stringBuilder.AppendLine("GO") | Out-Null
$stringBuilder.AppendLine(" ") | Out-Null

# Create file containing all commands
$stringBuilder.ToString() -join "" | Out-File c:\temp\cmd_exec.txt
