MongoDB ODBC - Auth Failed

Post by ceurraca » Thu 14 Dec 2017 21:10

Do you know why when I try to connect to setup a MongoDB ODBC get this error

[Devart][ODBC][MongoDB]auth failed

I am able to connect to the MongoDB through CMD, it's a remote MongoDB database.

The mentioned issue may occur if the driver loads not Devart client libraries (from the distribution), but some others. For example, such libraries can be in the paths of the PATH system variable.

To solve the issue, run C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe . This is a 64-bit version of ODBC Administrator. Create a new User DSN. Specify the credentials, and in the Client library field, specify C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\ODBC\MongoDB\Win64\libmongoc-1.0.dll and in the BSON library C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\ODBC\MongoDB\Win64\libbson-1.0.dll . Click Test Connection. Please report the result.

Then run C:\Windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe . This is a 32-bit version of the ODBC Administrator. Create a new User DSN. Specify the credentials, and in the Client library field, specify C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\ODBC\MongoDB\Win32\libmongoc-1.0.dll and in the BSON library C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\ODBC\MongoDB\Win32\libbson-1.0.dll . Click Test Connection. Report the result.

Note: you can download the latest version of our driver on our website:
