How to create MySQL Link Server in SQL Server 2012

Workbench is a free tool for MySQL but it is collection of issues in working environment. So I came back on SQL Server management studio. But think if our requirement is something like what , data will be at same place in MySQL and we have to access from SQL Server. Then we can use SQL Server's  Server object’s Link serverToday I am going to share 7 steps how I have made linked server from SQL Server to MySQL. 

1st Ensure that we have MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2 is installed. To verify check Control panel, if it is not then download and installed.

2nd Now open ODBC Connection Manager Window from control panel/Administrator Tool and ODBC Data Source. I have been selected 64 bit because my system is 64 bit platform.

3rd Now Add New Data Source Name, Server name, Port and Credentials. Then Check by Test option, is everything is all right. If all is OK then click on ok and just close this window.

4th Now Go to SQL Server and drill-down the Server object. We will see Linked Server. Just right click and choose New Linked Server.

5th Now Create Link server by Filling required information like below: give appropriate server name, provider as given, Product name, Data Source Name and Provider string and we can also give catalog. Linked Server name I have given XXX and Data-source name will be XYZ, which i gave created earlier from ODBC Connection manager.

6th Now give the Remote Login and Credential in Next Tab of window.

we can also use below script to create Linked Server

USE [master]

/****** Object:  LinkedServer [XXX]    Script Date: 26-11-2014 15:20:54 ******/
EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server = N'XXX', @srvproduct=N'MySQL', @provider=N'MSDASQL', @datasrc=N'xyz', @provstr=N'DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 5.2 Driver};SERVER=xx.xx.1.xx;PORT=3306;DATABASE=xxxxxx; USER=suman;PASSWORD= Blue@123;OPTION=3;', @catalog=N'xxxx'
 /* For security reasons the linked server remote logins password is changed with ######## */
EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname=N'XXX',@useself=N'False',@locallogin=NULL,@rmtuser=N'suman',@rmtpassword='########'

EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'collation compatible', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'data access', @optvalue=N'true'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'dist', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'pub', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'rpc', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'rpc out', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'sub', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'connect timeout', @optvalue=N'0'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'collation name', @optvalue=null
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'lazy schema validation', @optvalue=N'false'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'query timeout', @optvalue=N'0'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'use remote collation', @optvalue=N'true'
EXEC master.dbo.sp_serveroption @server=N'XXX', @optname=N'remote proc transaction promotion', @optvalue=N'true'

7th After that we will see the Linked server created as below …

8th Now run below query to select record from sql server to mysql using link server.

select * from openquery(xxx,'select * from DB.TABLE')

mongoDB error : aborting after fassert() failure

What to do when facing errors on mongoDB “aborting after fassert() failure” I like errors, in mongoDB this is the first error I faced and luckily many times. This error i faced during restoring name-space on local and restarting db system. I am still searching the exact root cause of this issue but i am able to resolve the current problem through below steps. Remove all relevant namespace files from data-file route path.. Now repair mongo instance using mongod process. mongod --repair ////////// execute command from bin folder path  Then start server using mongd process, if started server successfully then .. mongod  ////////// execute command from bin folder path Restore last backups as normal process. Now check database by connecting mongo shell. Thanks for reading,  Please comment your experience if you faced and also share knowledge if you have better steps to resolve...  

SQL71562: external references are not supported when creating a package from this platform

Last week I got this error from one of developer who was trying to deploy his project from Testing server to SQL Azure QA server. He was using “Deploy Database to SQL Azure” option from SSMS Tool-Task option. After connecting to SQL Azure portal when operation started to deployment below errors occurs. Validation of the schema model for data package failed. Error SQL71562: Error validating element has an unresolved refrence to object xx.dbo.xxxx external refrences are not supported when creating a package from this platform . Reason: The reason of the this error was; some functions of project was dependent on master database and only single database was being deploy to SQL Azure. DACFx must block Export when object definitions (views, procedures, etc.) contain external references, as Azure SQL Database does not allow cross-database external references So, this error was coming. Solution : I suggested him to create those function to locally
