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.
The SpxServiceName property specifies the name of the NWLink IPX/SPX service on an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.
To set the SpxServiceName property, you must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role. Typically, the computer name of the server (for example, ACCOUNTING1) is used for consistency.
If an application calls SpxServiceName on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
Setting the SpxServiceName property changes registry settings, and it should be used with caution.
