Checks the media on the instance of SQL Server that is represented by the specified Server object, loads backup history information into the history tables, and returns an error message.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended (in Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended.dll)
public bool SqlVerify(
	Server srv,
	bool loadHistory,
	out string errorMessage
)

Parameters

srv
Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server
A Server object that represents the instance of SQL Server that is targeted by the restore operation.
loadHistory
Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean value that specifies whether the history tables will be populated with pertinent backup information.
If True, the history tables are populated. Otherwise, False.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a backup of the AdventureWorks2008R2 database and verify that it is readable and complete.

VB

Dim srv As Server = New Server("(local)")
Dim res As Restore = New Restore()
Dim backup As Backup = New Backup()

backup.Devices.AddDevice("C:\AdventureWorks2008R2Backup.bak", DeviceType.File)
backup.Database = "AdventureWorks2008R2"
backup.SqlBackup(srv)

res.Devices.AddDevice("C:\AdventureWorks2008R2Backup.bak", DeviceType.File)
res.Database = "AdventureWorks2008R2"
Console.WriteLine(res.SqlVerify(srv, true, "The verification has failed.").ToString())

Powershell

$srv = new-object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$res = new-object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Restore
$backup = new-object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Backup

$backup.Devices.AddDevice("C:\AdventureWorks2008R2Backup.bak", [Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.DeviceType]::File)
$backup.Database = "AdventureWorks2008R2"
$backup.SqlBackup($srv)

$res.Devices.AddDevice("C:\AdventureWorks2008R2Backup.bak", [Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.DeviceType]::File)
Write-Host $res.SqlVerify($srv, $TRUE, [ref]"The verification has failed.")
