Hi Andres,

PowerServer does not support the INGRES database. To understand the Database drivers supported by Appeon on .Net version you can refer to the Appeon online help with the link below.

Thanks for the link- lead me to this- which would be super helpful if there was a note about it in the PB 2017 help file!

Well still encountering problems, AEM freezes when trying to test the SQL connection, not entirely frozen but unresponsive. SQL Server shows no connection and AEM will not function until it dies many minutes later. Something must be set wrong w/ my server or IIS settings. Probably should make a new thread for this instead of hijacking this one even though I get same message from the PB side after deploy & test.

What's the detail error, the default timeout of trying to connect to database is 120 seconds, please wait a moment t see the error.

And please refer to article below to solve the connect to SQL Server issue.

HI Andres;

       At this time, neither PowerBuilder or PowerServer are officially support the Ingres DBMS. However, you might be able to use ODBC drivers from Ingres for this. Make sure though that you have the 32bit Ingres ODBC driver in use for the PB IDE as it is only 32bit as well. For PowerServer, if you have installed the 64bit version of PS - make sure that you use the 64bit Ingres ODBC driver.

      In the case of the PB IDE and its generated EXE applications - you may also need to add an entry into the PBODBC170.INI file for the Ingress connection profile.

      Please create a Support Ticket as an enhancement request for this DBMS to be officially supported.

Regards ... Chris

Hi Andres;

   Were you able to create a Data Source for Ingres in PowerServer and test it OK via the AEM console utility?

Regards ... Chris
