<FileGroup> Element (<EventClass>)

SQL Server 2000

Specifies the SQL Server filegroup on which the event table will be created.


Element Characteristics
Characteristic Description
Data Type string, between 1 and 255 characters in length.
Default Value The event table is created on the default filegroup specified in the /Database/DefaultFileGroup section of the application definition file (ADF) if the <FileGroup> element is not specified. If the <DefaultFileGroup> element also is not specified, then the default filegroup for the SQL Server instance is used.
Occurrence Optional once per <EventClass> node.
Updates Can be added, deleted, and modified using NSControl Update.
Element Relationships
Relationship Elements
Parent Node <EventClass> Node

The <FileGroup> value must map to one of the <NamedFileGroup> values defined in the <Database> node.

If you update a <FileGroup> element, NSControl Update deletes and re-creates the event class to which it corresponds. This includes dropping and re-creating the SQL Server tables and indexes used by this event class.

Important  If you update a <FileGroup> element, any data existing in the original SQL Server tables is permanently deleted.
