Currently it is not easy to determine when DBCC CHECKDB last ran successfully on a database. Of if you like when it last ran and the state value of that execution in the case of a failure. (The state values that are discussed in BOL at

Sure the information is written to the error log. 

You can also examine the dbi_dbccLastKnownGood value in page 9 of the database.

But it should be easier to get this critical information.

This is vital information is vital and should be included in SYS.DATABASES. The solution in the comments below is obviously useful, but only by the handful of customers who read this Connect item.

Given how vital this information is, closing this item with such a narrowly distributed solution is not acceptable. Since this information is so easily accessible (as evidenced by the solution contributed in the comments), it should not be hard to add it to SYS.DATABASES or at the very least to the database objects in SMO and exposed through Object Explorer Details (when you select the database level).

Sankar: sorry for the late response. While the suggestion is useful, but there is a work-around like the one you had suggested, For this reason, we don't plan to fix it. I am closing this.

I wrote an elegant solution to find this info.

     Id INT IDENTITY(1,1),
     ParentObject VARCHAR(255),
     [Object] VARCHAR(255),
     Field VARCHAR(255),
     [Value] VARCHAR(255)


    SELECT [Value],ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY ID) AS rn1 FROM #temp WHERE Field IN ('dbi_dbname'))
    ,CHECKDB2 AS ( SELECT [Value], ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY ID) AS rn2 FROM #temp WHERE Field IN ('dbi_dbccLastKnownGood')
SELECT CHECKDB1.Value AS DatabaseName
        , CHECKDB2.Value AS LastRanDBCCCHECKDB
ON rn1 =rn2
