Developing SQL-DMO Applications

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) is a collection of objects encapsulating Microsoft SQL Server database management and replication management.

SQL-DMO is a dual interface COM in-process server implemented as a dynamic-link library (DLL). When creating a SQL-DMO application, you can use any OLE Automation controller or COM client development platform using C or C++.

SQL-DMO automates:

  • Repetitive or commonly performed SQL Server administrative tasks.
  • SQL Server object creation and administration.
  • Creation and administration of SQL Server Agent jobs, alerts, and operators.
  • SQL Server replication installation and configuration.

SQL-DMO documentation covers the components of SQL-DMO, their use in developing applications, and SQL-DMO application construction. It also includes a detailed component reference.
