Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server
'Display information about the instance of SQL Server in Information and Settings.
Console.WriteLine("OS Version = " & srv.Information.OSVersion)
Console.WriteLine("State = " & srv.Settings.State.ToString)
'Display information specific to the current user in UserOptions.
Console.WriteLine("Quoted Identifier support = " & srv.UserOptions.QuotedIdentifier)
'Modify server settings in Settings.

srv.Settings.LoginMode = ServerLoginMode.Integrated
'Modify settings specific to the current connection in UserOptions.
srv.UserOptions.AbortOnArithmeticErrors = True
'Run the Alter method to make the changes on the instance of SQL Server.
srv.Alter()
