StandardPassword 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 StandardPassword property identifies a string used as a password for login authentication when a connection to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server is required.

.StandardPassword [= value]


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


A string


Read/write for the ReplicationSecurity object. Write-only for the DistributionDatabase object.

HRESULT GetStandardPassword(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetStandardPassword(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);

SQL Distributed Management Objects (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.

The StandardPassword property is evaluated only if the SQL-DMO object indicates that SQL Server Authentication will be used by the referenced replication component. Use the SecurityMode property of the SQL-DMO object to direct authentication mode selection.
