I am aware that SQL Server 2012 is not officially supported by IDM 4.5
- this is quote problematic for many customers who have standardised
their entire environment on this release and have no plans to upgrade
to SQL Server 2014.

Want to confirm that this error is due to use of SQL Server 2012 and
whether it can be ignored.

I assume that this "Access right permission PROTECT is not defined" is
a wrapper for an access right added in SQL Server 2014.
