    A connection

    1. Click New Server | Add SQL Server.
    2. Complete the Details page. For more information, see Connection Properties | Details.

    Multiple SQL Server connections either via discovery or by importing them from a file

    1. Click New Server | Discover SQL Server instances.
    2. Complete the steps in the wizard.

      The Connection Discovery Wizard locates and displays the SQL Servers on the network you may want Spotlight to monitor. You can also import SQL Servers from a file.

      The new connections are automatically selected in the Select Servers dialog.

      Note: The Discovery Wizard locates and displays the SQL Servers on the network that you may want Spotlight to monitor. If the wizard discovers no instances of SQL Servers on the network, one reason may be that the SQL Server components that enable Spotlight to discover those servers have not been installed.

TIP: To delete a connection from the view, right-click the connection and select Delete.
