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 Shutdown method stops a running Microsoft SQL Server service.
object.Shutdown( [ Wait ] )
Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
Optional. TRUE or FALSE as described in Remarks.
HRESULT Shutdown(BOOL bWait = TRUE);
When Wait is TRUE (default), SQL Server performs an orderly shutdown: disabling logins, waiting for transaction or stored procedure completion, and checkpointing open databases.
When Wait is FALSE, the SQL Server service performs an immediate shutdown.
