Configuring ODBC Connectivity

Configuring ODBC Connectivity

You can configure ODBC connectivity to a Netezza database.
The following steps provide a guideline for configuring ODBC connectivity. For specific instructions, see the database documentation.
  1. Create an ODBC data source for each Netezza database that you want to access.
    To create the ODBC data source, use the driver provided by Netezza.
    Create a System DSN if you start the Informatica service with a Local System account logon. Create a User DSN if you select the This account log in option to start the Informatica service.
    After you create the data source, configure the properties of the data source.
  2. Enter a name for the new ODBC data source.
  3. Enter the IP address/host name and port number for the Netezza server.
  4. Enter the name of the Netezza schema where you plan to create database objects.
  5. Configure the path and file name for the ODBC log file.
  6. Verify that you can connect to the Netezza database.
    You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to test the connection to the database. To test the connection, select the Netezza data source and click Configure. On the Testing tab, click Test Connection and enter the connection information for the Netezza schema.
