    Congratulations on your first post and I'm glad you like our DB Manager! Long term we will probably move away from it, but it certainly makes some tasks easier. Although it wasn't built specifically for this, yes you can attach to other, Non-SolarWinds databases with it.

      Just curious, but what would SolarWinds move to if and when they move away from the Database Manager? There are many benefits to having the direct visibility into the database tables and many of us (if not most) are not SQL experts and might not have access to the Management Studio.
