when trying to create a new connection to SQL server 2008 from, only see Oracle database from the drop down list. why?


I have Benchmark Factory 7.3 installed. I am new to this. when I was trying to create a new connection for a SQL 2008 database, I only see oracle from the drop down list, there is no SQL server I can select, why?


More than likely this is a licensing issue. To verify you can go to the Help - About Benchmark Factory and on the popup dialog it will list all the drivers you are licensed for. Your copy of Benchmark Factory may have come with one of the Toad for Oracle bundles, in this case you will only be licensed for Oracle.


Yes. I just follow your instruction and verified it, we only have license for Oracle. that would explain it. thank you for the quick response!
