Excuse me if this is obvious. I have tried to find an answer to this problem without luck. A google search does not seem to show this as a common problem. I have an existing database, with a schema that has binary columns, and a default value for those columns (in this case "0000000000000000").
I am trying to extract the schema using "rake --trace db:schema:dump", and am getting the following error:
** Execute db:schema:dump rake aborted! binary columns cannot have a default value: "0000000000000000"
Clearly it does not like default binary values; but why is this? Should I be doing something different in order to hook ROR up to my existing database?
Thanks in advance,
