Here is the an issue I saw come across an alias that is a gotcha!
I’m running into a problem connecting to an AlwaysOn read-intent secondary and I was wondering if someone could help me out. I have the .Net Framework 4.5 installed and the newest SQL Client install for SQL Server 2012. Running this command from the server where SQL Server 2012 is installed works fine:
$ConnectionString = “Server=tcp:AGL,1800;Database=Contoso;Integrated Security=SSPI”
However, as soon as I include the ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly switch, it fails. I’m not sure how to specify that the SQL Native Client 11 should be used in the connection string (and not sure if I need to do such a thing.
$ConnectionString = “Server=tcp:AGL,1800;Database=Contoso;Integrated Security=SSPI;ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly”
Here is the error I receive, which is odd. The casing in the error message is completely different than I specify. Must be hard-coded somewhere.
Exception setting “ConnectionString”: “Keyword not supported: ‘applicationintent’.”
