Error validating the default for column newsequentialid
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client is still installed and used as a component dependency to support these features in SQL Server 2014 and later versions, although that may change in the future. Even before SQL Server 2012 was released, Microsoft announced in August, 2011 that ODBC was the preferred technology for relational database access and that OLE DB was deprecated.
Below is an excerpt from the Microsoft is Aligning with ODBC for Native Relational Data Access FAQ which should be alarming to folks who continue to use Microsoft OLE DB providers to access SQL Server 2014 and later databases (note Denali is the code name for SQL Server 2012 and, again, emphasis mine): Question6: If I have an OLE DB application that I write for Denali, will it be supported on a post Denali version of SQL Server that is released during the life of Denali?
Let me first mention that the Books Online should have made it clear that this warning applies only to SNAC data access by applications.
A few days ago, I blogged about a DBA who began his first day at a new company and could not find out where the installation summary file was.
He was very happy when I featured his story on our blog.
Today he asked me another question and when I received his question my first reaction was – not possible.
