Redmine 4.0.0 does not work with Microsoft SQL Server.

Can anyone test if Redmine 4.0 works with MS SQL Server? Please note that you have to run bundle update to install the latest activerecord-sqlserver-adapter gem.

#13 Updated by sebastián scarano 4 months ago

yeap, here's the release, it would be great if redmine latest version could be confirmed to work ok with sql server...

and update the note at http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineInstall#Supported-database-back-ends

Redmine 4.0 does not support SQL Server as of December 2018 because a dependent library activerecord-sqlserver-adapter does not support Rails 5.2 yet.

#14 Updated by Pavel Rosický 4 months ago

I tested it on SQL Server 2017 with these gems
activerecord-sqlserver-adapter (5.2.0)
tiny_tds (2.1.2-x64-mingw32)

it passes all tests, but unfortunatelly there's a problem with migrations due to this bug
https://github.com/rails-sqlserver/activerecord-sqlserver-adapter/pull/691

TinyTds::Error: The object 'DF_projects_description' is dependent on column 'description'.
087_change_projects_description_to_text.rb:5:in `up'

there might be an option to add a workaround in redmine, but it won't be pretty, so I would prefer to fix the problem in activerecord-sqlserver-adapter.

#15 Updated by John Bolthouse 3 months ago

Is there any progress on this? I would definitely like to upvote this as I have clients on Sql Server. I would also be happy to test potential solutions in our dev environments.

#16 Updated by Pavel Rosický 3 months ago

sorry, no feedback from activerecord-sqlserver-adapter's maintainers yet

but you can test my (unofficial) patch by changing the Gemfile

  when /sqlserver/
    gem "tiny_tds", "2.1.2", :platforms => [:mri, :mingw, :x64_mingw]
    gem "activerecord-sqlserver-adapter", :git => 'https://github.com/ahorek/activerecord-sqlserver-adapter.git', :branch => 'constrains_bug', :platforms => [:mri, :mingw, :x64_mingw]

on my environment it passes all activerecord-sqlserver-adapter's tests and redmine's tests. Let us know if it works for you.

Hello. They have megred your issue, as I can see?
https://github.com/ahorek/activerecord-sqlserver-adapter.git
Is this problem solved?

#20 Updated by Hiep Le 7 days ago

Hi Pavel,

Thanks for the update. Probably the problem not yet solved.
Could you please help clarify clearer with the patch file?

In Cygwin, I tried using both $ patch -p0 -i sqlserver.patch and $ patch -p0 < sqlserver.patch and none of them work.
Before using patch command, I converted the file using unix2dos but no luck. It kept failing with the LF and CRLF issue for ending line between linux and windows during file conversion.

Do I need to convert the file and what is the proper way to do? Please see the attached image.

Thank you very much!
Hiep

ok, try to change the Gemfile instead.

  when /sqlserver/
    gem "tiny_tds", "2.1.2", :platforms => [:mri, :mingw, :x64_mingw]
    gem "activerecord-sqlserver-adapter", :git => 'https://github.com/ahorek/activerecord-sqlserver-adapter.git', :branch => 'constrains_bug', :platforms => [:mri, :mingw, :x64_mingw]

CR/LF issues is off-topic, please ask on forums if you need help
there're better alternatives than cygwin
https://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/ or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Subsystem_for_Linux

yes, it's merged, but there's no release yet. https://github.com/rails-sqlserver/activerecord-sqlserver-adapter/releases
until that happens www.redmine.org/attachments/download/23286/sqlserver.patch might be a temporarly solution. cc Go MAEDA, your opinion?
