There are few points bellow about sandbox DB server for Plesk that should be noted:
- If the sandbox server was configured - this means it was configured properly. Otherwise it shows error on registration step.
To make sure settings are implemented you can check the details in database:
"%plesk_bin%"\\dbclient.exe --direct-sql --sql="select * from misc where param like \\"sandbox%\\""

- The Sandbox server if configured is never used during database creation neither from GUI nor from CLI.
- The sandbox server is not supposed to be used for hosting customers database or even be listed in the list of the configured databases servers. The Sandbox server feature is designed to use intermediate temporary server connected with "sysadmin" role to fix customers' database dumps is being restored on MSSQL servers connected with user without sysadmin role.
