We have an old workstation running Windows 2000 that must connect to MSSQL14 running on Windows server 2012 R2. When i try to create an ODBC using:

  • sa

  • TCP/IP (ex. 123.456.789.012)

  • not dynamic port 1434 (the one we use on every other workstation successful)

it gives me this error:

Impossible to connect

SQLState: '01000'

Sql server error: 1006 Impossible to connect

SQLState: '08001'

Sql Server error: 17

I think it's driver fault, but I can't find something useful... On the workstation there is this driver: Sql Server driver 2000.80.194.00

We need to change this workstation, but I need to make it works ASAP until that moment.

Can someone help me?

Community wiki answer:

I would try installing the SQL Server 2005 Native Client in the Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - April 2006.

Please note also that post says Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 is required to be supported.
