The class represents an alias for a server connection on the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) installation.
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.SqlWmiManagement (in Microsoft.SqlServer.SqlWmiManagement.dll)
A server connection alias is required when:
The client is connecting to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server over a network transport that is not the default network transport.
The instance of SQL Server to which the client is connected listens on an alternate named pipe.
To get or set object properties or run methods, users must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.
Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
