This is a question about the Connect to Server dialog in SSMS, the one that you use to connect to a server. I never noticed this before nor have I seen anyone talk about this, and it is kind of freaking me out.
We have a server with hyphens in the name. When I enter the server name with the hyphens, SSMS connects correctly. When I take the hyphens out of the name, *it also connects correctly*.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on here???
