I have verified that the ODBC from the server can reach the SQL Server and the database successfully:

This is after installing KB3159706

I've done the post install steps but still not working, so I had to uninstall KB3159706 to make it working again.

Did you check if your server was patched with the pre-req before apply the KB3159706?

As per https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3159706 

Pre-req: To apply this update in Windows Server 2012 R2, you must have April 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 (2919355) installed.
