Have just installed DS 3.2 SP2 on windows 2008 R2.
We have deployed the DS software on a server different from the server holding the SQL server repositories.
DS Designer is installed on desktops.
We have created a cleansing package repository and are now trying to attach the repository (using "manage connection") in the DS designer.
But when attaching the Designer crashes.
Not sure if it has any relevance, but we installed the SQL server native client on the client desktops to ensure proper connectivity to SQL server DBs and repositories.
More relevant could be the fact that we had to install the cleansing package on a client to seed the cleasning package repository. When running the repository manager on the server we are not able to create the repository, even if we have installed the 64 bit SQL server cnative client software. The repository manager simply replies that the repository we have specifed does not exist (Which is right), and then terminates (instead of creating the repository).
But as mentioned the repository was eventually created by using repository manager on a desktop client.
