Dear all.

Does the following scenario work.

--The sql native client installed is 2008 R2 Native client.
--The database server is MS SQL server 2008 R1, SP2.

Should the client and the server must be the same in the sense that they should the same SP or not.

You may have problems if client version is older, then server, but should not if it is newer.
Here is text from server requirement (SQL 2012, but it common - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms131002.aspx):
"When an older client version connects to SQL Server, server data types not known to the client are mapped to types that are compatible with the client version. For more information, see Data Type Compatibility for Client Versions, later in this topic."

Thanks.

Is the client selection should be 32 bit or 64 bit.

Does this depend upon the application.

32 bit client installed for 32 bit application.

or

does the client depend upon the workstation OS.

64 bit client on 64 bit windows 7 OS.


or

does the client correspond to the database server.

64 bit client on workstation communicating with 64 bit database server.
