InstanceDatabaseFileGroup Class

Describes one database filegroup for a Notification ServicesInstance.

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

public sealed class InstanceDatabaseFileGroup : NamedSmoObject
public final class InstanceDatabaseFileGroup extends NamedSmoObject
public final class InstanceDatabaseFileGroup extends NamedSmoObject

Each Notification Services instance has one database, which can consist of multiple filegroups. Defining these filegroups is optional.

If you define filegroups, one filegroup must be named PRIMARY. You can have additional filegroups to group additional data files together for administrative, data allocation, and placement purposes. For more information about files and filegroups, see Understanding Files and Filegroups.

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

The following examples show how to define a filegroup for an instance database:

InstanceDatabaseFileGroup idb_fg = 
    new InstanceDatabaseFileGroup(idb, "PRIMARY");

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.
