Bug: DBD::ODBC::db do failed: [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]The incoming tabular data stream (TDS) remote procedure call (RPC) protocol stream is incorrect. Parameter 7 (""): Data type 0xE7 has an invalid data length or metadata length. (SQL-42000) [for Statement "INSERT INTO longdescs (bug_id,who,bug_when,thetext,isprivate) VALUES (?,?,?,?,?)"] at Bugzilla/DB/Mssql.pm line 626 Bugzilla::DB::Mssql::do(undef, 'INSERT INTO longdescs (bug_id,who,bug_when,thetext,isprivate)...', undef, 9, 1, '2009-07-28 17:45:59.353', 'AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...', 0) called at Bugzilla/Bug.pm line 540 Bugzilla::Bug::create('Bugzilla::Bug', 'HASH(0x408a098)') called at D:\WebRoot\Bugzilla\post_bug.cgi line 175 It appears that when inserting to a NVARCHAR(MAX) field in a MSSQL 2008 database, that the precision is being incorrectly calculated. NVARCHAR(MAX) behaves more inline with a text field in relation to how much data it will hold, I believe that no precision needs to be sent. Using Management Studio for mssql 2008 I have tested inserting up to 500k characters in to a nvarchar(max) field with no issues. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186939.aspx* nvarchar* [ ( n | *max* ) ] Variable-length Unicode character data. *n** *can be a value from 1 through 4,000. *max indicates that the maximum storage size is 2^31-1 bytes*. The storage size, in bytes, is two times the number of characters entered + 2 bytes. The data entered can be 0 characters in length.

While building the script I found it is odder than I though: values longer than 2000 characters die UNLESS they are longer than 16383 at which point they work again I used a ranges of 0-20k in length for my test. I did test separately inserting lengths in the 64k range which worked fine. Attached a perl script file for testing.

My problem is that I may have a fix but I cannot know if it fixes it for you and I can only the driver you are using at different versions. If you install MinGW from activestate you can build DBD::ODBC yourself. It is not hard. Are you prepared to/ have time to have a go? Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK
Might as well, give it a shot. Pulling down MinGW now.

ok - here goes. Install MinGW the download latest DBD::ODBC from CPAN which is 1.22. Unpack it into a dir and open cmd prompt in that dir. Edit dbdimp.c and search for the following code: /* * Yet another workaround for SQL Server native client. * If you have a varbinary(max) or varchar(max) you have to pass 0 * for the column_size or you get HY104 "Invalid precision value". * See rt_38977.t which causes this. * The versions of native client I've seen this with are: * 2007.100.1600.22 sqlncli10.dll driver version = ? * 2005.90.1399.00 SQLNCLI.DLL driver version = 09.00.1399 */ if ((imp_dbh->driver_type == DT_SQL_SERVER_NATIVE_CLIENT) && (phs->strlen_or_ind < 0) && (phs->param_size == 0)) { column_size = 0; } delete the line "(phs->strlen_or_ind < 0) &&". set DBI_DSN=dbi:ODBC:your_dsn_name set DBI_USER=your_database_user set DBI_PASS=your_database_password The rest depends on perl and cpan from ActiveState being on your path (which they should be). Run cpan and you should get a prompt you can enter at. If you have never used cpan before you may have to answer some questions first. at the cpan prompt do test . It should configure and build DBD::ODBC in the current dir and run the tests. If they work you can do: install . Hopefully, the issue you reported is then fixed :-) If you have problems it may be quicker to email me at mjevans at cpan dot org. Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK

Sounds as though it is generating a makefile for the wrong make. Once at the cpan prompt what does o conf show. The make command shown should match the make you are using which should be on your path and probably supplied by MinGW. You may need to change the make cpan is using or set MAKE=dmake or something like that. Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK

I've tried with ActivePerl 1005 for x86/32 bit but with MS Developer studio installed (instead of MinGW) and it built fine with "test .". Interestingly, o conf in cpan shows make set to nothing but a dmake file is output - I've no idea why (all this is so much more simple on UNIX :-( ) I need to get hold of a machine without MS developer studio (which I am really loathe to uninstall on my test machine as it works) and perhaps a 64bit machine to be even closer to your setup. I'll try to find a machine tomorrow which I can do this on. Thanks for your efforts and patience. To be honest, the Windows world and in particular all the different versions of the SQL Server Driver for Windows are the bane of my life. Every time I make even the smallest change I live in fear of it breaking something which I cannot test as it is virtually impossible for me to have all the possible windows scenarios and drivers. Let me know if you get anywhere and I'll do likewise. Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK

I manually installed them. That said I was able to get things working. The issue occurred under 32Bit as well. Part of my initial setup issue were that I have Visual Studio 2008 installed and CPAN detected it and tried to use it. Which was actually the right choice as everything compiled on the first try once I used CPAN with VS2008.

Argh - I did not realise you already had MS devstudio - that explains some of it. What I meant about MinGW was a ppm install MinGW did not work for me - it was not found in the ppm repository that the out of the box activestate 5.10 x64 came with. <snipped output> Forgive me Michael but I've slightly lost sight of the problem now. Is your output showing with a changed DBD::ODBC (as I susggested) it is now working but with the stock 1.22 it fails. If that is the case I'll make this change permanent and do a new release soon.

2nd part was with release version (1.22). I included the retest under 1.22 only to verify the issue occured under 32Bit as well as under the originally reported 64Bit, in case anyone question it later. So yes the change you recommended did appear to solve the issue.

OK, I'll commit this change and prepare a new release. I'll probably do a development release first just in case it causes any problems. Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK
