Rules and Guidelines for Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse

Rules and Guidelines for Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse

Use the following rules and guidelines to use full pushdown optimization to read data from or write data to Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse:
  1. Install the Microsoft ODBC drivers for Windows and Linux operating systems. To download the drivers, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/connect/odbc/linux-mac/installing-the-microsoft-odbc-driver-for-sql-server#microsoft-odbc-driver-131-for-sql-server.
  2. For Linux operating system, you must set the
    ODBCINI
    and
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    environmental variables for the driver and create the DSN entries. Set the value of the
    ODBCINI
    file to the location of the
    odbc.ini
    file. For example,
    setenv ODBCINI "/data/home/adputf_9/cloud_td/ODBCINI/odbc.ini".
  3. To set the
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    environment variable, use the following format:
    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH "/opt/microsoft/msodbcsql/lib64/libmsodbcsql-11.0.so.2270.0"
  4. Add entries for the Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse data sources in the
    odbc.ini
    file. The following section shows an example of the entries in the
    odbc.ini
    file:
    [Sample Azure DW ODBC DSN][SD_Azure_DW]Driver=/opt/microsoft/msodbcsql/lib64/libmsodbcsql-11.0.so.2270.0Description=Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 for SQL ServerServer=dghhgx2ad3.database.windows.netDatabase=INFASQLDW_DEVLogonID=infadwadminPassword=QuotedId=YesAnsiNPW=YesEncryptionMethod=1SeedBeforeConnect=1EnableQuotedIdentifiers=1ValidateServerCertificate=0DriverUnicodeType=
  5. Restart the PowerCenter Integration Service.
In the ODBC connection, select the subtype as
AzureDW
to use full pushdown optimization.
