@tegbains A few days ago, yes. They are slow to get the ball rolling for this case, but they did tell me yesterday via email that they want to create an advisory case to pursue this (I initally reported via PartnerSource as a break-fix issue). I don't know where MSFT is or what they are doing at this point, but eventually they will probably help.

As an administrator, it is easy to lock-down which GP application can be launched by which user. And user DSNs can be specified to limit which users can access which SQL instances/ODBCs/DSNs. However, in the case of a user with access to multiple GP applications and multiple SQL instance (ex. a power user), why should he/she be able to run "GP application A" with "SQL instance B"? I should not be able to do this. GP A should match up with SQL A, GP B with SQL B, and so forth...a 1:1 relationship.

A GP instances requires (1) a unique GP installation directory and Dynamics.exe application, and (2) a unique SQL instance (not database, I truly mean SQL instance--as in a unique install of SQL). If a user launches a GP application on a server, when they attempt to login, they will be prompted to select to which "Server" (meaning SQL instance/ODBC) they want to connect.
