Question mark icon next to connection


I’ve got a connection set up to a sql server. When not connected, the icon next to the connection shows a circle with a question mark in it. This is the only connection where I see it (it is also my only sql server connection). As far as I can tell, it doesn’t affect the connection, so it’s not a big issue, but I can’t find it defined anywhere.

Can someone tell me what this icon means?



This just means that Toad cannot determine if the service for the connection is running or not because it does not have the privileges to check it's status. If you don't like it you can turn this off in the options by toggling the "Poll service status in connection list" option to off in this page.
