Remarks

Use the DatabaseServiceCollection class to manage the DatabaseService objects in the topology of a server farm. The DatabaseServiceCollection object corresponds to the list of DatabaseService objects in the Services table of the configuration database. DatabaseService objects are distinguished from other services and components listed in the Services table by the GUID value of the DatabaseService.ServiceClass public field ({EE5C0FF4-B182-42A3-A6E7-E12F54A4AF13}) in the ClassID column.

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.
