HRESULT GetMediaPassword(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetMediaPassword(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);
The MediaPassword property provides the password used for a media set. If a media set password exists, it must be supplied to perform any restore operation from the media. If no media set password is passed by the Backup2 object, MediaPassword is set to NULL. An application can set MediaPassword multiple times; however once a backup or restore operation has been performed, MediaPassword cannot be altered.
Note If an application calls MediaPassword on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the operation is ignored.
