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 FileGroup2 object exposes the attributes of a filegroup in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and later and extends the functionality of the FileGroup object.
The FileGroup2 object extends the functionality of the FileGroup object for use with features that were introduced in SQL Server 2000. It also inherits the properties and methods of the FileGroup object. With the FileGroup2 object, you can:
Check file group integrity with results that are returned in tabular format.
The methods and properties of the FileGroup2 object may not be compatible with instances of SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier. For more information about using the FileGroup2 object in an application that also runs with an instance of SQL Server 7.0, see the Remarks section for specific methods and properties. For more information, see Programming Extended SQL-DMO Objects.
When used with SQL Server 2000 and later, the Name property can be set on an existing FileGroup object if it is not a primary file group.
