Modifying the Configuration object is equivalent to using the Transact-SQL sp_configure statement.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.

To get Configuration object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.


Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
