Connect Using ODBC Connection In Vbscript

Dec 12, 2007

I am trying to connect to a database and run a query using vbscript. The problem I have run into currently is that I can not get the connection to open even though I know the DSN name it still says it can not find it. I am fairly new to vbscript so I am not sure exactly what it is looking for in the connection string so that it will find the database. Any ideas?

Cannot Connect To SQL 2005 Using System DSN ODBC Connection

Dec 28, 2007



I am running SQL 2005 SP1 on Win 2003 Std x64 SP2. I get an error trying to connect using an ODBC System DSN connection. The ODBC connection gets the following error:


Connection failed:
SQLState:'28000'
SQL Server Error: 18456
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'sa'

The SQL Server logs the following error:

18456, Severity: 14, State: 8.

I have tried this with several SQL accounts. I am able to login to the SQL Manager with the accounts without issue. It is only when trying to connect via ODBC that I get the error. I am currently downloading SQL 2005 SP2 to see if this will help with the issue. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Question On VBScript Connection Issue And SQL 2005

Aug 13, 2007

I have a script that performs a number of reiterative tasks very quickly on a SQL database. After a few thousand requests (2-3 minutes) I get the following error:

Error: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.
Code: 80004005
Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers

The connection string looks like:

Driver={SQL Server};Server=45.22.11.33;Uid=test;Pwd=test;Database=Test

I have changed nothing and it always does this. It doesn't matter if in my script I open and close the connection on every request or leave it open the whole time.

Additionally, the script and the database are on the same machine.

Thanks for any help.

Can't Find SQL Native Client In ODBC Connection Manager In SQL Server Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)

Feb 13, 2007

I apologize if this is not the correct forum for this posting. Looking at the descriptions, it appeared to be the best choice.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2. I have installed the SQL Native Client for
XP. However, when I try to add a new data source through ODBC Connection
Manager, SQL Native Client is not listed as an option. I have followed this procedure on three other systems with no problems. What would be causing the
SQL Native Client to not show up in the list of available ODBC data sources?

Cannot Connect With ODBC Using TCP/IP??

Oct 25, 2005

Win 2003 Small business server with IIS being used as a web server.
Our client app can log in and run queries, but our web app when trying to log in gets the message,
'SQL server does not exsist or access denied'
The system DSN's are both sql drivers and the configuration is name pipes. Our recomended specs use TCP/IP, but when I try to change it, it craps out on me. He's opened up his firewall completely to this new box and his old box, a Win2k machine can connect using TCP/IP. This machine is in a work group.
Any suggestions on what it might be??? :confused:

ODBC Connect Failed In SQL Job

Jan 2, 2007

I am running SQL Server 2000 sp4 in Win Server 2003. I have a DTS
packages which connects to FileMaker 6 files via the ODBC driver
installed with FielMaker.

The DTS packages work correctly when
executed directly. However, when executed from a SQL Server Agent job,
the same DTS packages fail. Always with the same message:

Error: -2147467259 (80004005);
Provider Error: 16394 (400A)
Error string: [FileMaker][ODBC FileMaker Pro driver][FileMaker Pro]Connect failed
Error source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers


Searching
for info on the above message seems to indicate a permissions problem.
However, I am running the jobs with an full administrator account. All
connections and the FielMaker files reside on the one server.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Using ODBC To Connect To SQL Server Database

Jan 21, 2007

I am trying out a simple ASP.NET application which includes access to an SQL Server Database. It works fine on my local machine when I connect to the SQL Server and use SQL commands (via C#) to access it.
But my web hosting provider uses ODBC drivers for database access (they support the SQL database type). I would like to find out how I should connect to my SQL Server database and program the access in order for it to be ODBC compatible, so that I can deploy it to my web hosting server.  I should also mention that I am using Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition.
Thanks for any help or pointers.

Connect To SqlServer 2005 With Odbc

Feb 28, 2008

Hi all,
I'm not a db guru and probably this is a very simple question for you, but I was wondering if it was possible to connect to a SqlServer using odbc without DSN.
I mean, I'm trying to connect to the db server from a linux (Fedora Core 8) workstation, using odbc drivers, but it looks like I can do that only using a DSN connection and setting properly the odbc.ini file. It doesn't work, if I use a connection like this from a PHP script:
$cn = odbc_connect("Driver={SQL Server};Server=MyServer;Database=MyDatabase",
"MyUser","MyPassword")
Does anyone know how to connect to SqlServer with a DSN-less connection? Could you explain me where is the error?

I'm using SQLServer2005, Fedora Core 8 with the last FreeTDS installed.

Please help!

Thanks million in advance.

Win32::ODBC Connect To MSSQL

Apr 19, 2004

Hi,

I wanted to know if there is a way to connect to my MSSQL without having to setup a datasource in the control panel.

Perferably I want to locate the database within my perl code instead. I don't want to have to setup a datasource each time I need a different database. Perhaps there is a way to pass the name of the database along with the username and password through the command line.


Any suggestions?

Thanks.

ODBC Tries To Connect Through The Wrong Port

Apr 20, 2007

Hi,



I've been running some tests with a 3rd party application during the last few days, but the ODBC doesnt seem to be working well.



The ODBCs are configured to go through specific ports, since there's a firewall between the server (production area) and the database (which is located in the dev area). If i press the TEST CONFIGURATION button after i configured the ODBCs, the test is successful, and the log file of the firewall monitor shows that the server is connecting through the designated ports.



But when i run the 3rd party application, the queries fail, showing an error that says "The server cannot be found or you dont have access", after this error, another one appears, saying something like "Connection().opened..." - unfortunately I don't have the actual text, I'll try to post it as soon as i get them .



Just to make sure that the 3rd party app is doing its job, dev team wrote a simple VB6 app to query the database, and it shows the same error.



Both apps are running well in the dev environment, since dev machines don't have to go through the firewall, and both apps are using the ODBC configured in the same way as the server. I could think that the problem is the firewall, but the firewall logs show that the production server is trying to use ports 1433, 1434, 445 and 139, and there isnt a single entry showing activity for the ports specified on the ODBCs configuration.







The database server is running SQL Server 2000, the dev pcs are running Windows 2000, and the ODBC driver version is 2000.85.1117.00.



On the Production environment the server that is trying to access the database is running Windows 2003 Server Ent Ed. SP 1 , and the ODBC driver version is 2000.86.1830.00



I hope some one outthere has any ideas to solve this problem, or at least any idea of what is causing this error, because im running out of them.



Thanks in advance.

ODBC Connect Times Out, But 2nd Time Works

Oct 19, 2000

When I begin Enterprise Manager and open a connection to a Server, it fails with a timeout error. But if I do a refresh and then connect again, it immediately works.
I have had similar symptoms setting up a data source for ODBC. When you initially logon to SQL Server to define the connection it times out. But then if you immediately try again it succeeds.
Furthermore one of my application programs fails to work (due to the timeout) on systems that have this behavior.
I have had these symptoms occur on 2 diferent workstations, but other workstations access the SQL Server with no problem.
All systems are WinNT 4.0; the engine is SQL Server 7 with SP2. The timeout is defined as 15 seconds so should be long enough.

Does anyone know what is going on, or how to fix it?

Runtime Connect Error To ODBC System DSN

Feb 24, 2006

Hello,

I have created an SSIS package to retrieve data from a Lotus Notes database using the NotesSQL 3.02g ODBC driver.

In SSIS design mode, I can connect to the Notes datasource using the following connection string without any validation errors.

uid=UserID;Dsn=LN_Costs;

I have tried other variations of the connection string including every possible connection string parameter available to the driver as follows.

server=Server_Name;uid=UserID;Dsn=DSN_Name;Driver={Lotus NotesSQL Driver (*.nsf)};database=costing/productcost.nsf;username=UserID;encryptpwd=encrypted_password;maxsubquery=20;maxstmtlen=4096;maxrels=20;maxvarcharlen=254;keeptempidx=1;maxlongvarcharlen=512;showimplicitflds=0;mapspecialchars=1;threadtimeout=60;

Using the above connection strings in SSIS design mode, the datasource test succeeds, and an sql select statement in a datasource reader returns the table structure with no error.

However, when I try to run the package, I receive the following error.

SSIS package "Sales Data Load.dtsx" starting.
Information: 0x4004300A at Data Flow Task, DTS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning.
Error: 0xC0047062 at Data Flow Task, DataReader Source 2 [408]: System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException: ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

SSIS package "Sales Data Load.dtsx" finished: Failure.

Furthermore, I have packages configured in SQL 2000 DTS to use the same system dsn without any errors.

Why doesn't this work in SQL 2005 SSIS?

Cannot Connect To SQL 2005 Using Vista ODBC Administrator

Mar 12, 2008

Here's the context:

Database server:
- Remote machine running SQL 2005 Standard as a named instance
- Named pipes and TCP are enabled for remote connections
- SQLBrowser service is running
- Listening on default named pipe (\servernamepipeMSSQL$instancenamesqlquery)

Client:
- Vista Business machine
- Not in same domain as server, but on the same network (via Cisco VPN)
- SQL 2005 Express is installed (for use with local databases)
- Windows Firewall enabled
- Running Symantec Antivirus, Corporate Edition

Connectivity:
- I CAN connect to SQL 2005 databases on the remote server using "nperverinstancename"
- I CAN connect to SQL 2005 databases on the remote server using Excel 2007

The problem is that I cannot successfully create an ODBC datasource using the "ODBC Data Source Administrator" application. I'm using the "SQL Server" driver and trying to create a System DSN. I'm also running the tool with elevated permissions.

- When I try to use "servernameinstancename" as the server and TCP as the connection type, I get this error:

Connection failed: SQL Server Error: 18452; "[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server] Login failed for user ''. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.

- When I try to use "npervernameinstancename" as the server and Named Pipes, I get this error:

Connection failed: SQLState: '01000'; SQL Server Error: 1326; [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionOpen(Connect()).
Connection failed: SQLState: '08000'; SQL Server Error: 17; [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

Help! I've really been beating my head against the wall on this one. It all works just fine with a Windows XP client machine.

Error 18456 When Trying To Connect To 2005 Using Odbc

Oct 1, 2006

Hi all

I am using Windows XP SP2 with a Sql server 2005 Express installation. I created a test db with a user called test, schema also test. I gave the permission connect, db_datareader and db_datawriter. I can now connect into this user using WinSQL. But if I want to connect using a application which is using ODBC, then I get the error:

[SQLSTATE=28000 - [Microsoft][SQL Native][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'test'.[Native Error=18456]]

Because I connect using ODBC, I think there must be the problem. But I have to connect with ODBC. There is no other possibility.

any ideas ?

Regards, Waff

I found this out:

The server collation is defined to: Latin1_General_CI_AS

If I create a new login id in lowercase, then ODBC will change it to uppercase and then the server refuse the access. But why. CI means case insensitive, so doesn't matter if upper or lower case. should.

How do you use a id in lowercase and connecto via ODBC ?

How To Avoid Web Users To Connect To SQL Server Trought ODBC

Feb 25, 2008



Hi everybody,

i'll try to explain the problem with my bad english, so sorry.

In my firm i have a server (W2003 Server) with IIS 6.0 and SQL Server 2005 EE an it is joined in the main domain as all users and their workstation (window XP) are joined too.

The main role for this server is to be a web server and with IIS Manager I configured to verify user identities with Windows Integrated authentication without any anonymous access to web pages (ASP scripts).

I made a group called "Web Users" with read right on ASP scripts and his only one member is "Domain Users".

"Web Users" has of course rights to access this server from network.

This group is also a SQL Server login because it has rights to wiew an modify data at least in one db table trought ASP pages using ADO, but the problem is that they can also connect using ODBC.

Configuring SQL to accept only local connection i can avoid this, but as SQL Admin i can't connect too. So how is possible for web users interact with SQL only trought web pages ?
Thank you very much

Bcp Cannot Connect Via Local Connection, But Can Using Remote Connection?

May 19, 2008

Hi. I'm (very) new to SQL Server. I have run into what seems to be a very common problem, judging by the number of Google hits, but it's not actually in the FAQs here, as far as I can see.

Situation
I installed SQL Server Express with Advanced Services 2005 on my Windows XP Pro laptop, using (with one exception) the default install. The exception was to put the data files on a separate partition (D: ) where I have more free space.

SQL Server Management Studio Express connects happily, and I set up a single data import table.

Issue: bcp Fails to connect to default local instance
I initially tried bcp in output mode, prior to working in earnest on importing my data. However the command line-


bcp MyDatabaseName.dbo.UserProfile out UserProfile.txt -T -c

Fails with the error-


Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2].

As I understand it, the local instance of SSE is the default, and should use a local (shared memory?) connection. This seems to work for Management Studion Express, but not bcp.


While investigating this problem, I tried enabling remote connections (all types) through the Surface Area Configuration wizard, and found that remote connections using either of:


bcp eSpacePh1.dbo.UserProfile out UserProfile.txt -T -c -S localhostsqlexpress
bcp eSpacePh1.dbo.UserProfile out UserProfile.txt -T -c -S mycomputernamesqlexpress

both work ok.

Extra Info
When starting Management Studio Express, it says something like "Configuring environment for the first time". However it says this every time it is started, not just the first run after installation, does this indicate some configuration data is not being successfully stored?

I have found threads that look similar to my issue-


http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=836670&SiteID=1
http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3351349&SiteID=1

However these do not relate directly to bcp, and to be honest my knowledge of SSE is slender enough at this stage that i'm unsure if there are really relevant.

Any hints on how to proceed much appreciated.
