Server Constructor (String)

Initializes a new instance of the Server class with the specified name.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)
public Server(
	string name
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
A String value that specifies the name of the instance of SQL Server.

Use this constructor when the required instance of SQL Server is not the local, default instance. You can use this method when the SQL Server instance is local, but is not the default installation. You can also use this method for remote instances of SQL Server.

Visual Basic

'Connect to a remote instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
'The strServer string variable contains the name of a remote instance of SQL Server.
srv = New Server(strServer)
'The actual connection is made when a property is retrieved. 
Console.WriteLine(srv.Information.Version)
'The connection is automatically disconnected when the Server variable goes out of scope.

PowerShell

#the strServer string variable contains the name of a remote instance of SQL Server.
$srv = new-object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server($strServer)
#The actual connection is made when a property is retrieved.
Write-Host $srv.Information.Version
