SAGE 100 WEEKLY NEWS
September 29, 2022

SPONSOR: DATASELF


If there’s one thing the last two years has made abundantly clear, it’s that the supply chain - like the Florida weather -  is anything but predictable. Delays, price increases, and stock shortages plague even the simplest of jobs.

And yet . . . there’s a lesson here; we need to do a better job of leveraging what’s currently happening in our supply chain to predict what could happen to it in the future.

Sage Updates Basic and Modern Authentication Guidelines




Sage continues to clarify that Sage 100 users who rely on Microsoft to email forms from within Paperless Office should not encounter any issues with previously announced OAuth changes.

According to the update: 

 At this time, Microsoft will not block active accounts using SMTP authorization. This means that Sage 100 customers utilizing in-product email services to send quotes, invoices, etc., do not face a shutdown of this functionality beginning on October 1, 2022, as originally projected.

Error: "SQL is not enabled" when opening Sage 100 Premium with TLS 1.0 and 1.1 disabled on SQL Server




After disabling TLS 1.0 and/or 1.1 on the SQL Server user may see an error "SQL is not enabled" when attempting to login to Sage 100 Premium. This may occur even on versions of Sage 100 which are TLS 1.2 compatible.

The issue appears to be at least partly attributable to the version of the SQL ODBC driver installed to both server and workstation as trying to connect directly to SLQ via ODBC may produce similar errors.

Cause

  • TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are disabled on SQL Server

Resolution

  • Sage Engineering is currently reviewing this issue
Possible Workaround
  1. Verify Micrososft SQL Native 11.4.7001 is installed on Server and workstation(s) (NOTE: Use Program and Features)
  2. Modify ....\MAS90\HOME\massql.settings in Notepad
  3. Change 'SQLOLEDB' to 'SQLNCLI11' under @Reporting section
  • Example: Provider=SQLNCLI11;Data Source={dsn};User ID={username};Password={password};
