    [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed



      We have a classic ASP web application talking to Oracle database. Currently we are migrating this application to a new server whose OS is Windows Server 2012 R2. On the new server, we have installed & configured Oracle client successfully. TNSping, sqlplus, ODBC Data Source Administrator are all working properly. However, we are still facing a database connection issue of below.


      Response.Write "<script>alert('Hello1');</script>"
      set MyCon = server.createobject("ADODB.connection")
      Response.Write "<script>alert('Hello2');</script>"
      MyCon.open "DRIVER={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};ConnectionString=TNSName;UID=Username;PWD=Password;"
      Response.Write "<script>alert('Hello3');</script>"


      Error message:

      Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

      [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed

      /MSDS/test.asp, line 21


      Hello1 & Hello2 popped up. But Hello3 didn't pop up. Do you have any ideas?

          Since you are using Microsoft driver we can not provider any suggestions. So please use Oracle  ODBC driver


          Sample Code :

          Const oracle_user = "scott"
          Const oracle_password = "tiger"
          Const oracle_sid  = "ORCL12C2"
          Const odbc_driver_name = "{Oracle in OraClient12Home1_32bit}"

          Set DBConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
          Set SQLCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")

          DBConnection.Open "Driver=" & odbc_driver_name & "; " & _
                        "DBQ=" & oracle_sid & "; " & _
                        "UID=" & oracle_user & "; " & _
                        "PWD=" & oracle_password & ";"

          Set SQLCommand.ActiveConnection = DBConnection
