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[] assemblyLocalPaths


Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.AssemblyAlterOptions

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

Type: System.String[]

A String array value that specifies the server paths (which can be a network share) of a single module assemblies that contain manifests.

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