Description

This is related to connect #424800. As described in this blog post:

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqlrem/archive/2011/07/13/deleting-old-server-names-from-quot-connect-to-server-quot-dialog-in-ssms.aspx

We can now delete entries from the MRU list by using the delete key (or Fn+Delete if, like me, you're using SSMS inside VMWare Fusion).

However, we may have four entries pointing at the same server, and we want to keep the one with the right credentials and/or auth mode, but we can't tell which one it is, since the list only exposes server name. The workaround is to delete all of the duplicates and create a new one from scratch, but this is less than optimal and - with a quick fix - could me made much more direct and predictable.

Hello,

Thanks for reporting this issue. We triaged this along with the other bugs for our next major release, but unfortunately it did not meet the bar for fixing. I'm resolving this bug as won't fix for now. However, the DCR suggestion will be kept in our bug DB, and will be revisited the next time we make investment in this feature.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any concerns.

Thanks,
