Using ODBC IIS Logging on Server 2008 R2 for BPC 7.5 Microsoft

Using ODBC IIS Logging on Server 2008 R2 for BPC 7.5 Microsoft

With the option to swap the IIS 7.5 logging from standard to ODBC no longer a GUI option the process of setting up logging to the BPCLog table has become a more involved task.

After following the standard Microsoft and SAP instructions for configuring the Custom ODBC IIS logging to a SQL destination, running the APPCMD commands to set the logging plugin, the destination table and credentials, I still found myself hitting the same error again and again… “The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application”.

After several different articles and some thought, I found that the System DSN needs to be created in the 32bit version of the Data Sources (ODBC) wizard (C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe). As we have enabled the Application Pool in IIS to ‘Enable 32bit Application’ the ODBC driver also needs to be 32bit
