InstanceDatabaseOptions Class

Represents the database options for an instance database.

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

public sealed class InstanceDatabaseOptions : NamedSmoObject
public final class InstanceDatabaseOptions extends NamedSmoObject
public final class InstanceDatabaseOptions extends NamedSmoObject

Use the InstanceDatabaseOptions class to configure the default filegroup and collation for the instance database.

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

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 data files, log files, and database properties for an instance database:

// 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.
