E1: ESU: After Converting Local Database on Deployment Server to SSE, Software Updates Fail to Install. New Software Update Datasources are Created with Type N (MSDE) Rather than Type X (SSE). (Doc ID 1135279.1)

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.98 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In this scenario, customer has just installed EnterpriseOne 8.12 application release level with TR patch and has converted the local databases for Planner and all environments from MSDE to SQL Server Express (SSE).

When customer goes into the Electronic Software Updates (P96470) application, the process is creating the Software Updates - JKxx datasource as type N (MSDE) rather than type X (SSE) as it should be. When going into the ESU P96470 application, customer gets a "Copy/Init" Error in the form status bar and the new ESU does not show up. The jde.log states:

ODB0000155 - SQLNumResultsCols failed. Table F9670, ODBC DSN EnterpriseOne Local.

Checking in the Database datasources application, the datasource is created as type N, not type X.

Troubleshooting completed:

If customer uses the P96707 application, he can manually attach the database and then install the ESU, but all new ESUs continue to create the datasource as type N and then not show up in the ESU application for install with the copy/init error.


Converted the local databases for Planner and all environments from MSDE to SQL Server Express (SSE).
