MSSQL 2 instances same server, 2 different databases

#1

Hello Guys,

I have a problem with MSSQL-Plus node. I have 2 separate flows that are adding values to same MSSQL server, but on 2 different databases, with 2 different users and passwords.

Even if i select the correct connection for the MSSQL node, he is not able to do the switch between them, he is always checking the table name in the other database. Is like he remain connected to one of the databases and not checking the connection config each time when values are entering the MSSQL node.

I am not able to use 2 different databases on the same node-red server.

Did anyone encounter this error before? Do you have a solution for this?

Thank you!

I have no problems accessing tables from two different databases in two different flows. The mysql is installed on the same machine as I am testing on using node-red-contrib-mysql

using a simple select:

  1. if you only have database/tab/e A in the flows, does it work?
  2. If you swap out database/tab/e A for database/tab/e B in the flows, does it work?
  3. what is the full name of the node you are using?
    If you still have a problem, please provide your flows but read this first: How to share code or flow json

@zenofmud the Q is about MSSQL not Mysql...

Hello zenofmud,

I have flow A, that is processing a set of data and a "node-red-contrib-mssql-plus" node which is configured to add data to database WeatherST, table cStoreWeatherStations.
And flow B, that is processing another set of data (the source is different from the flow A) and after processing the data i have another "node-red-contrib-mssql-plus" node which is configured to add data to database IoT, table GatewayStats.

Now what happens is very strange, the first sets of data that comes in are putted in the correct databases and tables, the next set of data is randomly selecting only one of the databases connection.

What i have done to test is to create table GatewayStats, into database WeatherST and surprisingly informations are added there, even if the MSSQL node is correctly configured with the connection of IoT database.

So the SQL connection remains connected to WeatherST database and is adding there all the info from both of the flows (if he find the correct table name and column settings). The node is not even checking again if the SQL connection is different.

Yes, dceejay, is about MSSQL not MySQL.

Thank you!

As @zenofmud suggested I think pasting a portion of your flows here would be worthwhile. Just the db access nodes and a few nodes before them. It doesn't have be enough to work, just to see the config.
Have you checked on the node's github repository to see if there are any similar issues reported there?

Head slap!

Hello, the Nodered server is not on the same machine as the SQL server.
On Github is nothing related with this error.
Now for the flows:

any help?

#9

All MSSQL nodes has problem with connect two or more connection to different MSSQL servers because connection is set to flow node not disconnect connection and remember old data to connect.

Sorry,
New version MSSQL plus looks like goods.

#10

I am using the MSSQL Plus. you recommand to uninstall MSSQL Plus and reinstall it again?

#11

Yes, but I'm not sure will be working.
