This applies to DBD::ODBC 1.14 (and earlier versions). It may apply to versions of DBD::ODBC later than 1.14 if our patch for the fix is not implemented by the maintainer (see the DBD::ODBC changes file).

In SQL Server 2005 and later, Microsoft have changed the way:


works. This affects tests 28, 31, 32 and 33 in the 20SqlServer module.

The errors look like:

You can ignore these failures as they are an error in the test rather than a bug in DBD::ODBC itself. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions below to correct the problem.

Edit the file t/20SqlServer, search for:

$sth = $dbh->prepare("dbcc TRACESTATUS(-1)");

and change it to:

$sth = $dbh->prepare("dbcc TRACESTATUS(0)");
