Using ado_mssql for db backend, I find that the django_admin_log table created by manage.py install admin command has a problem. The data type of object_id column is "text", which is one of the unsortable data types (text, ntext, image) in MS SQL Server. That makes the user history in Admin interface unusable, throwing expections.
Also it doesn't make much sense if an ID column is of "text" data type. Instead, the data type should be "integer". So the contrib/admin/models.py file has to be modified. I applied the change, and the user history page worked fine.
