I actually tried a brand new installation of SQL 2008 SP1 Enterprise Ed
. on the server with O/S Windows Server 2008 Standard SP2
, and while attempting to set the SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
collation setting, I was told by the SQL setup that this collation setting is provided for backward compatibility only! The Latin1_General_CI_AS
collation setting was offered as the default!
When I run a query spanning 2 servers, each on one of the two collation settings I get this error:
Msg 468, Level 16, State 9, Line 11
Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" and "Latin1_General_CI_AS" in the equal to operation.
Are collation settings being changed on Windows Server 2008, to the point that older collation settings may never be applicable?!
All the machines in my env are on collation setting SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
, which means on any instance which is on collation Latin1_General_CI_AS
multi-server queries will fail!
