Database Element for Configuration (DTA)


You can specify only one Server element for the Configuration element. This element is of the ServerTypecomplexType name in the Database Engine Tuning Advisor XML schema. Do not confuse this Server element with the one that is the child of the DTAInput element. For more information, see Server Element (DTA).


For a usage example, see the XML Input File Sample with User-specified Configuration (DTA).
