Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and later supports multiple database server instances on a single server computer through the use of named instances called SQL Server instances.

The public constant ServiceClass defined in the DatabaseService class contains the GUID value that distinguishes a DatabaseService from other Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 services.

To use the properties and methods of the objects in the Topology namespace you must be a member of the local STS_WPG and SPS_WPG security groups, and a member of the db_owner database role for the configuration database.

In addition, for certain methods, such as those that create a portal site, you must be a member of the local Administrators group, and have membership in the Database Creators and Security Administrators server roles in the SQL Server instance that hosts the configuration database.
