Function Test-SqlPath
{
<#
.SYNOPSIS
Tests if file or directory exists from the perspective of the SQL Server service account
 
.DESCRIPTION
Uses master.dbo.xp_fileexist to determine if a file or directory exists
 
.PARAMETER SqlServer
The SQL Server you want to run the test on.
 
.PARAMETER Path
The Path to tests. Can be a file or directory.
 
.PARAMETER SqlCredential
Allows you to login to servers using SQL Logins as opposed to Windows Auth/Integrated/Trusted. To use:
 
$scred = Get-Credential, then pass $scred object to the -SqlCredential parameter.
 
Windows Authentication will be used if SqlCredential is not specified. SQL Server does not accept Windows
credentials being passed as credentials. To connect as a different Windows user, run PowerShell as that user.
 
 
.NOTES
Author: Chrissy LeMaire (@cl), netnerds.net
Requires: Admin access to server (not SQL Services),
Remoting must be enabled and accessible if $sqlserver is not local
