Hello, I'm trying to evaluate TeamCity as an alternative to TFS for our company. I was hoping for a smoother experience, but thus far - no.
After doing the installation of TeamCity 9.1.4, and then clicking "Finish" it brings up a browser with "TeamCity First Start"
I selected the database type: MS SQL Server
(I have installed SQL Server 2014 on a fresh installation of Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard)
When it complained the first time that "The MS SQL Server JDBC driver is not found in the
C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\TeamCity\lib\jdbc directory.", I downloaded sqljdbc_4.2.6420.100_enu.exe from Microsofte's website and installed that, and clicked "Refresh JDBC drivers" and now it says "Loaded MS SQL Server JDBC driver version 4.0"
I entered for "Database instance name:" my SQL Server instance-name "SQLSERVER", left the other fields on that page blank, chose Windows Authentication...
and it gives me this error: "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.8 is not supported by this driver. Use the sqljdbc4.jar class librasry, which provides support for JDBC 4.0"
I am not a Java expert. I do .NET, and have no idea why it is complaining about JRE version 1.8 (was there ever such a version? I installed JRE versions 7 and 8 onto this box) and why would this installer not give some clear directions during installation? What does one do with this mess? How do I use "the sqljdbc4.jar class library" - do I need to search for that file, and do something with it? This is one reason I avoid Java programming, everything is so unclear.
Is this not a supported combination (C# .NET development, or Microsoft SQL Server) ?
Your help would be appreciated - thank you.
