SSMS 2012 || Connect to Server (Additional Connection Parameters Page)

Rohit Garg, 2012-11-16

The Connect to SQL Server Management Studio presents a new Additional Connection Parameters Page. Use the Additional Connection Parameters page to add more connection parameters to the connection string.

Steps to get Additional Connection Parameters page

  1. In Management Studio, on the Query menu, point to Connection, and then click Connect.
  2. In the Connect to dialog box, click Options, and then click the Additional Connection Parameters tab.

What is the use of Additional Connection Parameters page ?

· Additional connection parameters can be any ODBC connection parameter.

· Additional connection parameters should be added in the format ;parameter1=value1;parameter2=value2.

· Parameters added using the Additional Connection Parameters page are added to the parameters selected using the Connect to dialog box options.

· The last instance of each parameter provided overrides any previous instances of the parameter. Parameters added using the Additional Connection Parameters page follow and replace the parameters provided in the Login or Connection Properties tabs. For example, if the Login tab provides SERVER1 as the Server name, and the Additional Connection Parameters page contains ;SERVER=SERVER2, the connection will be made to SERVER2.

· Parameters added using the Additional Connection Parameters page are always passed as plain text.

· Do not include login credentials and passwords in the Additional Connection Parameters page. They will not be encrypted when they are passed across the network. Use the Login tab instead.

· You can use it for both Database engine Services or Analysis Services.

Example :-

1) We have not mention user password in login page

2) We have enter, Server Name, database name, User Name & password like parameter in Additional Connection Parameters Page & we connect successfully on MSDB database with test user.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
