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 SQLServer2 object exposes the attributes of an instance of Microsoft SQL Server and extends the functionality of the SQLServer object.
The SQLServer2 object extends the functionality of the SQLServer object for use with features that were introduced in SQL Server 2000. It also inherits the properties and methods of the SQLServer object. With the SQLServer2 object, you can:
Retrieve column-level collation settings.
Retrieve information about detached database and log files.
Retrieve information related to installed instances.
The methods and properties of the SQLServer2 object may not be compatible with instances of SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier. For more information about using the SQLServer2 object in an application that also runs with an instance of SQL Server 7.0, refer to the Remarks section for specific methods and properties. For more information, see Programming Extended SQL-DMO Objects.
