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 ServiceName property returns the name of a computer on which an instance of Microsoft SQL Server is running.
Use the ServiceName property in conjunction with the InstanceName property to uniquely identify an instance of a server running on a computer. The InstanceName and ServiceName properties return a string.
If an application calls ServiceName on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
