Adapter's version is not supported


  • Make sure to use a jdbc jar file listed in our PAM document, for example: mssql-jdbc-9.2.0.jre8.jar
  • Only one mssql jar file have to be listed under the lib folder
  •  The mssql-jdbc_auth-xxxx.dll (xxxx to be replaced with the used version) is copied to the C:\usr\sap\dataprovagent\sapjvm\bin directory. It can be found in the install zip in \sqljdbc_xxxx\enu\auth\x64 directory.
