Better MSSQL handling
- MS SQL Server 2012 Express via Plesk Installer is configured to use dynamic ports by default and this causes a warning in Tools & Settings > Database Serrvers. Packages installed through your installer should not cause a warning by default :)
- Improve the behavior of field "Allow remote connections from", under Domains > domain.tld > Databases > User Management > username because the generated firewall rule is OFF by default; maybe this is by design, infact the field description states "Your changes in this list will be pre-moderated by your hosting provider.", but the admin doesn't get any notification about changes to be moderated (notification to be implemented in my opinion).
- enable using instance names in connection strings: MS SQL Probe service is behind firewall by default, but this prevent using instance names in connection strings, even when instances are listening on a fixed port number. There is already a rule to block all TCP connections to MS SQL Server, and this should be enough.
This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features. Thanks in advance!
