Hi all - I'm having problems setting up ColdFusion ODBC sources in a pure 64-bit environment. Server specs:
- Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit)
- ColdFusion 9.01 (251028) Enterprise, 64-bit
I have 64-bit ODBC drivers for all of my database sources:
- 64-bit SQL Server (bundled with Windows 2008 R2)
- 64-bit MS Access 2010 (with 64-bit Access ODBC driver from Office 2010 64-bit install)
- 64-bit ODBC drivers for Sybase SQL Anywhere 11 (from SyBase)
Using the (64-bit) ODBC Administrator, I can create system DSNs and they test out perfectly. (From my test Access database, I can use these DSNs to pull data from SQL Server and from SQL Anywhere.) Since this is working, I'm pretty confident that my drivers are all 64-bit and that everything is happy.
Now for ColdFusion...
When I try to create a new data source in the ColdFusion Administrator and I use, the "ODBC Socket" option, I am presented with a drop-down list of my 64-bit ODBC system DSNs (good!), but whenever I select one and save, I invariably get an "architecture mismatch" error like below:
Connection verification failed for data source: MSSQLtestDatabase
java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][ODBC Socket]internal error: The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application
The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][ODBC Socket]internal error: The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application
I am well aware that "architecture mismatch" errors mean that you're trying to mix 32-bit drivers with a 64-bit application (or vice-versa), but I'm pretty sure that everything in my environment is 64-bit.
As a further test, I created a few 32-bit ODBC system DSNs and the ColdFusion Administrator does not present them as options in the drop-down list of ODBC DSNs (good!). So, it seems like the Administrator is smart enough to show only the 64-bit DSNs, but whenever you try to connect to one, it gets confused and kicks up an "architecture mismatch" error.
So is there any obvious configuration error here? Is there a 32-bit subcomponent to ColdFusion (JDBC, etc.) that's confusing things? (I ran the ColdFusion_9_WWE_win64.exe setup downloaded from Adobe's site.) Is 64-bit ColdFusion ready for prime time? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joe
