Transfer Class

The Transfer object is a tool object that provides programmatic control over copying of schemas and data to other instances of Microsoft SQL Server.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)

public class Transfer : ITransferMetadataProvider
public class Transfer implements ITransferMetadataProvider
public class Transfer implements ITransferMetadataProvider

Note: There are some limitations when transferring a database from a server instance running Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to a server instance running Microsoft SQL Server 2000.

  • If the database has a schema for which there is no corresponding user on the target SQL Server 2000 server instance, it cannot be transferred. In this case, you have to create a user who has a name that is the same as the name of the schema.

  • Any object that uses the following datatypes cannot be transferred:

    • SqlDataType.Xml

    • SqlDataType.VarCharMax

    • SqlDataType.NVarCharMax

    • SqlDataType.VarBinaryMax

Note: The following object types cannot be transferred:

  • All broker objects

  • All mail objects

  • Endpoint

  • ServerDdlTrigger

  • ExtendedStoredProcedure

  • FullTextCatalog

  • UserDefinedMessage

  • ApplicationRole

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.

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

To transfer data, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.
