FreeTDS MSSQL Ubuntu Text Size Limited to 32256 Characters

Oct 23, 2014 by

MSSQL + FreeTDS on Ubuntu + a REALLY big text field, make sure you set ‘text size’ up to  4294967295 on freetds.conf

By default, it was limited to 32256 characters! Took quite a while to debug

  1. THANK YOU. I just spent the last two hours googling cominations of [tinytds, sequel, ruby string] truncate nvarchar(max) 32256. Even just `ruby 32256` and `32256` led nowhere useful.

    I finally found your post by changing to `freetds 32256`. THANK YOU X 3!
