I know that this is an old thread, but I think it's the best place...

I've just been caught out by this - luckily nothing major, but still a production server issue.

I had my QA server set to blue and production set to red in my Registered Servers list, but, for this little-used server, I had got a different setting under File/Connect Object Explorer/Options and this is the colour that seems to take priority when using the 'Connect' button in Object Explorer.

I then managed to execute some QA code on production and stuff up an important SQL Agent job, which we rapidly unstuffed

Does anyone know where these settings are held? I'd like to remove anything that might override what I have set up under Registered Servers.

Phil take a look at Wayne's post on page 1 of this thread. http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1004880-2739-1.aspx He explains how the color can be set from two locations depending on how you connect. Sounds like you were a victim of using the Object Explorer to connect. Seems like MS should fix that.

Hi Sean and thanks for the response.

My point is that using Object Explorer to connect works as you would expect (with colour coding from Registered Servers) unless that colour coding has been overridden, as mentioned in my earlier post.

So my thinking was that all would be well if I could remove all of the Object Explorer colour settings somehow. I could of course do this manually, but would rather just excise a few Registry keys (if that is where the settings reside) to do the job properly.

Thanks
Phil

Ahh I see where you are going. I wish I knew where that info was stored. You are probably correct that it is in the registry somewhere...
