Can Rails be run against SQL Server 2008 from Linux/Mac?

Is anyone successfully running Rails against SQL Server 2008 from either
a Linux or a Mac?

I have been able to run my Rails apps. against SQL Server 2000 using the
standard freetds/unixodbc/ruby-dbi/ruby-odbc combination.

But it appears that perhaps freetds cannot be used to hit SQL Server
2008? I’m not sure - I’ve only googled for about 15 minutes or so.

So, can anyone say definitively whether or not SQL Server 2008 is a
valid DB target for Rails?


Sorry to bother everyone with this.

The problem turned out to be a password issue after a migration from SQL
Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008.

FWIW, I’m successfully hitting SQL Server 2008 using:

Mandriva Linux v. 10.x w/freetds 0.63 and unixODBC 2.2.12
