    This is even more important now that software RAID is replacing hardware RAID. I didn't notice Software RAID / Storage Spaces performing a background scan when the server was next to my desk in the morning when I arrived for the day.

    Debugging in Sql Server is a critical feature for those who use it. This is disappointing and significantly increases time required to develop stored procedures.

    This makes Sql Server much less competitive in the marketplace. Oracle has a very nice debugger and PostgreSQL introduced debugging functionality starting with PostgreSQL 8.3.

    Hello all

    Database Diagrams is being deprecated for SSMS 18. As such, we have not planned any work on this feature for a while. Please use Visio or any of the 3rd party ER modeling tools for this functionality. I understand some of you may have dependency on this feature. You are welcome to continue using 17.9.1 if it works for you.

    thanks,
    Dinakar

    The diagram tool has been there for 20+ years. It should be grandfathered in!

    Please add a more respectable message to display when someone tries to utilize the diagram tool.

    I'm not sure what the issue is but it should not be that difficult to retain that functionality. I suspect it cannot diagram the graph tables and other database technologies being added to the MS SQL Data Platform. Based on actions it seems MS is focused much more on adding data platform capabilities (which is great) than on maintaining their tools
