    Might be an incompatible (too old, or too new) version of SQL Server. Check Product Availability Matrix for your version of Data Services.

    The latest supported SQL server for DS 4.2 is MS SQL Server 2014.

    Hi ,

    Are you using dataservices 4.1 ?

    I encountered the same problem earlier . My Job server is on unix, was not able to use database type as SQL SERVER 2008 instead I used ODBC . It worked fine for me .

    Thanks,

    David King J.

    Hi Anandhi,

    Please confirm from the document if the version of the MS SQL Server is supported by the version of the dataservices.

    I faced a similar issue when I was using Dataservices 3.2 and MS SQL Server 2012 and hence had to use odbc to resolve(using the odbc.ini file)

    You will usually need to define the ip address of the SQL SERVER and user access for the account that have the admin privilege.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    AJ
