Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.PartitionSchemeCollection
A PartitionSchemeCollection object that represents all the partition schemes defined on the database.

Remarks

Specific partition schemes can be referenced by using this collection by specifying the name of the partition scheme. To add a new partition scheme to the collection, call the partition scheme constructor.

Examples

VB

Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server

'Reference the AdventureWorks2012 database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")

'Display all the partition functions and schemes on the database.
Dim pf As PartitionFunction
For Each pf In db.PartitionFunctions
   Console.WriteLine(pf.Name)
Next
Dim ps As PartitionScheme
For Each ps In db.PartitionSchemes
   Console.WriteLine(ps.Name)
Next

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")
Foreach ($pf in $db.PartitionFunctions)
{
   Write-Host $pf.Name
}
Foreach ($ps in $db.LogFiles)
{
   Write-Host $ps.Name
}
