Property Value

An InstanceDatabaseOptions object that specifies properties of the instance database.

Specifying instance database properties is optional. For more information about default values, see Defining the Instance Database.

The following example shows how to define database properties for an instance of Notification Services:

// Define instance database properties
// Create the InstanceDatabaseOptions object
InstanceDatabaseOptions idb = 
    new InstanceDatabaseOptions(myInstance, "MyInstDB");

// Define and add a filegroup
InstanceDatabaseFileGroup idb_fg = 
    new InstanceDatabaseFileGroup(idb, "PRIMARY");

// Define and add a data file
InstanceDatabaseFile idb_file1 = 
    new InstanceDatabaseFile(idb_fg, "MyInst_PrimaryFile1");
idb_file1.FileName = @"C:\NS\Full\MyInst_PrimaryFile1.mdf";
idb_file1.InitialSize = "5MB";
idb_file1.MaxSize = "15MB";
idb_file1.GrowthIncrement = "10%";

// Define and add a log file
InstanceDatabaseLogFile idb_log = 
    new InstanceDatabaseLogFile(idb, "MyInst_LogFile1");
idb_log.FileName = @"C:\NS\Full\MyInst_LogFile1.ldf";
idb_log.InitialSize = "3MB";
idb_log.MaxSize = "10MB";
idb_log.GrowthIncrement = "10%";

// Define database options
idb.CollationName = "Latin1_General_CS_AS";
idb.DefaultFileGroup = "PRIMARY";

// Assign options to Instance.InstanceDatabaseOptions property
myInstance.InstanceDatabaseOptions = idb;

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
