PagerAddress Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The PagerAddress property specifies an e-mail address used to route SQL Server Agent operator notification.

object.PagerAddress [= value]


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list


A string that specifies an e-mail address



HRESULT SetPagerAddress(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);

SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The application must release the reference using SysFreeString.

SQL Server Agent can dispatch notification to operators using an e-mail client. Third-party software and hardware can convert e-mail into an electronic page.

Indicate the operator paging address in the PagerAddress property to configure an operator for receipt of notification by pager. Set the PagerAddress property to an empty string to stop notification by pager. Use the PagerDays property, and related properties setting available hours, to control SQL Server Agent notification attempts for the referenced operator.
