    Unanswered: What does this icon mean


    Normally the Server-icon in the enterpirse manager is gray-box with a green start-button (see also the attached picture).
    However, on 2 occassions I noticed an extra red curly vertical line on this icon.

    The first time it was after I connectted my SQL2000-EM with to a SQl7-server, The 2nd time it was with a SQL7-EM to a different SQL7-server.

    It gave me the impression something was wrong with either my connection or the server. But nothing could be found.

    Any idea why this extra red line was displayed ? Or where to search for more info ?

    In the SQL 7.0 version of Enterprise Manager, the red squggly line on the right side of the server icon indicated that you were connected to that server. I do not think they included that red line in SQL 2000 Enterprise Manager, though.

    As explained nothing to worry with the icon reprensentation, make sure to refer SQL error logs in regular intervals to get to know any issues on the instance.
