Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.EndpointCollection
An EndpointCollection object that represents all the endpoints defined on the instance of SQL Server.

The Endpoint class is used to manage connections over the network for SQL Server services. These include database mirroring, SQL Server, Transact-SQL, and SOAP requests. These are also referred to as the payload types.
