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.

To get Information object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.

To set Information object properties, users must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.
