InstanceDatabaseFile Class

Represents the file specifications for an instance database file.

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

public sealed class InstanceDatabaseFile : NamedSmoObject
public final class InstanceDatabaseFile extends NamedSmoObject
public final class InstanceDatabaseFile extends NamedSmoObject

Each InstanceDatabaseFileGroup can contain one or more InstanceDatabaseFile objects. Each InstanceDatabaseFile contains information about one instance database data file.

If you want to alter the instance database after creating the instance, use the SQL Server tools, such as SQL Server Management Studio.

The following examples show how to define a data file for the instance database:

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%";

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.
