2681428 - Failed to connect to local repository after Hana DB upgrade - Data Services


  •  Upgrade Data Services and Hana Database version to a compatible pairing.
  •  Install Hana 2.x Driver, but keep the older Hana 1.x driver installed as well.
  •  Create new repositories that connect to Hana DB natively. Connection test is successful.
  •  In Designer Login or Repository Manager try to sign into the newer repositories and the following error will appear.
    Error "Initialization ODBC call <*****> to connect database <> failed with error: <*****>. Use the ODBCDriverSelector (Windows) or (UNIX) utility in LINK_DIR/bin to configure the correct version of the driver. If the problem still exists after selecting the correct version of the driver, notify Customer Support. This message contains some internal system details which have been hidden for security. If you need to see the full contents of the original message, ask your administrator to assign additional privileges to your account."
