SnapshotObjectOwner 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 SnapshotObjectName property identifies the owner of the Microsoft SQL Server database object providing an initial snapshot of replicated data for an article.

.SnapshotObjectOwner [= value]


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


A string that identifies an existing SQL Server database user by name


Read/write for a TransArticle object. Read-only for a MergeArticle object.

HRESULT GetSnapshotObjectOwner(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetSnapshotObjectOwner(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.

For more information about SnapshotObjectOwner, see SnapshotObjectName Property.


If an application sets SnapshotOwnerNamewith the TransArticle object after the initial snapshot has been created, a new snapshot must be generated. Snapshots are applied when the next scheduled snapshot agent runs.
