This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

To get Settings object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.

To set Settings object properties, users must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server
'Display information about the instance of SQL Server in Information and Settings.
Console.WriteLine("OS Version = " & srv.Information.OSVersion)
Console.WriteLine("State = " & srv.Settings.State.ToString)
'Display information specific to the current user in UserOptions.
Console.WriteLine("Quoted Identifier support = " & srv.UserOptions.QuotedIdentifier)
'Modify server settings in Settings.

srv.Settings.LoginMode = ServerLoginMode.Integrated
'Modify settings specific to the current connection in UserOptions.
srv.UserOptions.AbortOnArithmeticErrors = True
'Run the Alter method to make the changes on the instance of SQL Server.
