StandbyFiles Property

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.

The StandbyFiles property specifies the name of an undo file used as part of a Microsoft SQL Server imaging strategy.


object
.StandbyFiles [= value]

object

An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list

value

A SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) multistring that identifies an operating system file by name

String

Read/write

HRESULT GetStandbyFiles(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetStandbyFiles(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);
NoteNote

SQL-DMO strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The application must release the reference using SysFreeString.

Database log restoration with undo is available against a read-only image of a SQL Server database and offers one strategy for maintaining a standby image of a critical instance.

For more information about setting multistring parameters, see Using SQL-DMO Multistrings.
