scan for startup procs Option

Use the scan for startup procs option to scan for automatic execution of stored procedures at Microsoft SQL Server startup time. If this option is set to 1, SQL Server scans for and runs all automatically run stored procedures defined on the server. The default value for scan for startup procs is 0 (do not scan).

The value for this option can be set by using sp_configure; however, it will be set automatically if you use sp_procoption, which is used to mark or unmark automatically run stored procedures. When sp_procoption is used to mark the first stored procedure as an autoproc, this option is set automatically to a value of 1. When sp_procoption is used to unmark the last stored procedure as an autoproc, this option is automatically set to a value of 0. If you use sp_procoption to mark and unmark autoprocs, and if you always unmark autoprocs before dropping them, there is no need to set this option manually.

The scan for startup procs option is an advanced option. If you are using the sp_configure system stored procedure to change the setting, you can change scan for startup procs only when show advanced options is set to 1. The setting takes effect after the server is restarted.
