Audit.Disable Method

Disables the audit.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)

public void Disable()

The Disable method disables the audit, if it has already been enabled. If the audit has not been previously enabled using the Enable method, nothing will happen when Disable is called.

The following code example demonstrates how to disable an audit.

C#

using System;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo;

namespace samples
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //Create the audit
            Server dbServer = new Server("(local)");
            Audit dbAudit = new Audit(dbServer, "Test Audit");
            dbAudit.DestinationType = AuditDestinationType.File;
            dbAudit.FilePath = "C:\\AuditDirectory";
            dbAudit.Create();

           //Enable the audit
            dbAudit.Enable();
            Console.WriteLine("The audit is enabled")

            //Disable the audit
            dbAudit.Disable();
            if (dbAudit.Enabled == false)
            { 
            Console.WriteLine("The audit has been disabled");
            }
        }
    }
}

Powershell

#Create the audit 
$dbServer = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$dbAudit = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Audit($dbServer, "Test Audit")
$dbAudit.DestinationType = [Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.AuditDestinationType]'File'
$dbAudit.FilePath = "C:\AuditDirectory"
$dbAudit.Create()

#Enable the audit
$dbAudit.Enable()
Write-Host "The audit is enabled"

#Disable the audit
$dbAudit.Disable()
If ($dbAudit.Enabled -eq $FALSE)
{
   Write-Host "The audit has been disabled"
}
