SqlAssembly.Alter Method (AssemblyAlterOptions, String)


Updates any SqlAssembly object property changes on the instance of SQL Server with additional options.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)

public void Alter(
	AssemblyAlterOptions assemblyAlterMethod,
	string primaryAssemblyServerPath


Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.AssemblyAlterOptions

An AssemblyAlterOptions object value that specifies the options for altering the assembly.

Type: System.String

A String value that specifies the server path (which can be a network share) of a single module assembly that contains a manifest.

The Alter method updates any changes that have been made to the SqlAssembly object's properties since the SqlAssembly object was created or since the last Alter statement. The modifications are combined and sent to the instance of SQL Server in a single network trip to the instance of SQL Server.

SQL Server searches in the path for assemblies the referenced assembly depends on and that have not yet been installed. SQL Server accesses the indicated files directly and therefore needs to have sufficient access rights to complete this operation successfully.
