The error message shown while running the TPC-C workload


I am experimenting with Benchmark Factory and using version 7.1 (64bit) build 496.
When I ran TPC-C against Microsoft SQL Server 2014 (12.0.2000.8 – 64 bit),
I got this error (my job was set to Stop job after first error):

Repository Error: ODBC Error (S1000,4F3) - [MySQL][ODBC 5.1 Driver][mysqld-5.5.8]Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation ‘=’

The problem scenario:

  1. Open New Job Wizard
  2. Create a new DataBase Connection method for “Microsoft SQL Server (ODBC)”
  3. Perform ODBC administration
  4. Create a new DSN use (ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server) and test the connection successfully.
  5. Add Workload “TPC-C” to TEST
  6. Select User Agent (Selected)
  7. Run Job
  8. The error message is shown in the “Output” window

This problem is also observed after change the following settings:

  1. Select other ODBC source and then run. (EX: SQL Server、SQL Server Native Client 11.0)
  2. Select other wordload (EX: TPC-E、TPCH、AS3AP、TPC-B、TPCD)

My question now are:

  1. What this error code means?
  2. How can I avoid this error?

Thank you,
