roho has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am running Activestate Perl 5.8.9 on Windows 7. I have been able to establish a connection to MS SQL Server using DBI for years. What I need now is to establish a Dedicated Administrator Connection (DAC) to SQL Server via DBI. I can establish a DAC connection to SQL Server using "sqlcmd" in a cmd window by prepending "ADMIN:" to the server name or by using the "-A" option, and this works fine.
When I prepend "ADMIN:" to the server name in my DBI connection string I get the following error message:
When I add the DAC listening port to the end of the server name in my DBI connection string I get the following error message:
I have tried Super Search and Google, and have come up empty. Does anyone know how to establish a DAC connection to SQL Server using DBI?
