Patch Manager - Error when migrating from an older version of MSSQL to MSSQL 2014+

Table of contents

Updated 10/9/2017


This article provides information on how to resolve connection issues caused by migrating from an older version of MSSQL to MSSQL 2014+.  Patch Manager sends a DataGrid Service error 1064.


  • Patch Manager 2.1+


The SQL Server tries to use algorithms for encrypting data and causes the error. If you use SQL Server 2016 and try to create a Symmetric Key or Asymmetric Key for encrypting data. And if you try to use an algorithm like TRIPLE_DES, you will get the following error:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 20
Incorrect syntax near 'TRIPLE_DES

To Fix these connection errors, the Compatibility on the Database must be changed so that the correct algorithm can be used for communication. 



See for instructions on how to change the database compatibility.   (© 2017 Microsoft, available at, obtained on <10/9/2017.)
