In SQL Server 2005, classes for creating and managing Notification Services instances and applications are in the Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Nmo namespace. This class, replaced by the Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Nmo.Instance class, is included only for compatibility with earlier versions of Notification Services and may not be supported in a future release.

An NSInstanceDescription object represents the information about a specific Notification Services instance. The InstanceEnumeration class provides an indexer that returns an NSInstanceDescription object.

The NSInstanceDescription class has no constructor. NSInstanceDescription objects are created by the Item property.
