Online Documentation for SQL Manager for SQL server

Setting connection properties

This step of the wizard allows you to specify the host/instance to attach database to, and to provide authentication parameters.


Attach Database - Setting connection properties


Server name

Type in or use the drop-down list to select the host/instance name to attach database to.



Specify the type of Microsoft® SQL Server™ authentication to be used for the connection: the built-in RadioButton Windows authentication or RadioButton SQL Server authentication.


If 'SQL Server' has been selected as the authentication type, you should also provide authorization settings: User name and Password.


Trust server certificate

If you use this option, the connection process skips the trust chain validation. In this case, the application connects even if the certificate can't be verified.
