SQL Server 2014 SMO And TruncateData

Max Trinidad finds a version inconsistency in SMO:

Hum! I just found out that in SQL Server 2014 (SP2 installed), while migrating from SQL Server 2005, one of my PowerShell script (I’ve been using for a long time) that uses SMO to truncate tables. But, when running it against a SQL Server 2014 database, I’m getting an error:

“..this property is not available on SQL Server 2014.”

For mi surprise, I ran the same PowerShell script against SQL Server 2016 and it works fine.

That seems rather odd.  If this affects you, vote up his UserVoice item.
