    • Fixed loss of some base monitor configuration on upgrade

  • We're currently running 11.0.1 and SQL Monitor now indicates that version 11.0.2 is available including a link "Learn how you can automate updates to SQL Monitor" which points to https://www.red-gate.com/SM11/automated-installation-and-updates. However that link requires a username and password even though I'm logged in on your site already. My usual username/password don't work.
    There's no mention of automated updates in the regular online documentation, just the old install process.

    How can we get this new information?

    Unfortunately we've had a few issues getting this working as well as we'd like so we've removed in-product notifications starting 11.0.2. Stay tuned for updates in a later release of SQL Monitor 11.

    This is more of a question than a complaint.  Was the Add New Host button intentionally removed from the Global overviews page, as it seems to be missing with version 11.0.9?  I ask because I don't see that mentioned in the release notes.  While I have found it convenient to access that feature directly from the Global overviews page, I could certainly live without it if the decision was made to remove it.  Just curious.

    Hi, I believe you are referring to the button "+ Add monitored server" on the global overviews page, if that is the case then this button is hidden at the moment for resolutions smaller than 1849px. I hope this helps.

  • DonFergusonDonFerguson San Diego, CAPosts: 139 Silver 3
    Yes, that's it.  Thanks for the explanation.  Sorry getting the text wrong in my query as I was working from memory and couldn't see the button to give the exact text in the description.  And yes my resolution doesn't go that high, so for me it's missing.  

    Can you elaborate what you mean by "this button is hidden at the moment"?  To me that seems to imply that perhaps that was an unintentional change that may be fixed in a future update.  But it's not clear.

  • Hi folks
    is there a requirement to restart sql after applying 11.0.15?

    FYI the last version (11.0.15) generates false positives "SQL Server instance unreachable" on SQL Instances which disabled as a service and suspended in RG SQL Monitor

  • Hi folks

    There's no need to restart the SQL Server after upgrading to 11.0.15.
