sqlserver probe (sqlserver_monitor) is not maintaining the configuration entered.

1. GUI selection box for 'Enable Cross domain' is not persisting the setting, so the connection test fails. The selection is not saved.

2. Selection of the specific connection for the test is also not saved/persisted.


Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - SQLSERVER 5.42/5.45


- leftover probe GUI artifacts from previous versions
