Database.SetOwner Method (String)

Sets the database owner.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)
member SetOwner : 
        loginName:string -> unit

Parameters

loginName
Type: System.String
A String value that specifies the SQL Server logon that is the new database owner.

You can set the database owner to a server login account. If the specified login is already a user in the database, you must either remove it first, or use the SetOwner overload and set the overrideIfAleadyUser parameter to True.

VB

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server

'Reference the AdventureWorks2012 database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")

'Set the owner to a valid logon. When True, the second 
'parameter will override if the proposed login is 
'already defined as a user on the database.
db.SetOwner(lstr, True)

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")

$db.SetOwner(lstr, $TRUE)
