Updated text:

Server permissions are required when granting, denying, or revoking server-level permissions on an instance of SQL Server. The ServerPermission object is used to specify the set of permissions that apply to the Grant, Deny, and Revoke methods of the Server object. Also, server permissions can be added to the ServerPermissionSet object, which can also be used with the Deny, Revoke, and Grant methods.

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


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.
