We upgraded the TDM Portal and datamaker to 4.10.
After the upgrade, the portal is working.
However, when we try to connect to the gtrep database server on MS SQL server 2016 we get an error about the client not being able to use SSL encryption.
How do we correct this?


The gtrep SQL server was upgraded to enable SSL for all connections.


TDM Datamaker 4.10
MS SQL 2016


Both TDM datamaker 4.9.1.X and 4.10.X have had a patch provided to update the MS SQL server driver to version 18 which will allow for the connection to new database servers including those set up with encryption.
The drivers are part of the 4.9.1040 and 4.10.2 datamaker patches.
Below is the link to the TDM Patches page.

The new drivers will be in the following location.
c:\program Files (x86)\Grid-tools\GTDatamaker\GTFiles| MSSQL Server ODBC Client 18.0

You will need to run this installation manually.

Next, go out to MS website and download the following and install it:

Then go into the 32-bit ODBC connection and create a new connection to the GTREP database using the SQL Server 18 driver to make the connection.
Last you will need to update Datamaker to use the new 32-bit ODBC connection name.
