Configure ODBC Data Sources on Linux or UNIX

Configure ODBC Data Sources on Linux or UNIX

Use this procedure to configure ODBC data sources on Linux or UNIX.
  1. Copy the DataDirect Driver Manager from the computer where PowerCenter and DVO are installed to the server where Power Exchange and the Data Archive engine are installed.
    To copy the DataDirect Driver Manager, copy the following directory to the system with the Data Archive engine:
    PowerCenter_installation_directory
    /ODBC6.1
    Tar the entire directory, copy it using FTP, and then untar the directory on the target system.
  2. Add the ODBC6.1/lib directory to one of the following environment variables:
    • LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Sun or Linux
    • SHLIB_PATH on HP-UX
    • LIBPATH on AIX
  3. Create the odbc.ini file and set the ODBCINI environment variable to point to this file.
    In the odbc.ini file, include the following line for each data source:
    Compatibility=ILMBRIDGE
    The following example shows a section of an odbci.ini file for one data source:
    [nrdb2_mhz8902] Driver=/
    pwx_installation_directory
    /source/libdtlodbc.so Description=dBase Database= DBType=nrdb2 Location=
    zos_listener_name
    DBQual1= DBQual2= MaxRows=0 Compress=N Encrypt=N ConfirmWrite=N PaceSize=0 InterpretASRows=N BulkLoad=N DeleteTempFiles=0 LoadOptions=0 JCLTemplate= CTLTemplate= ModeType=0 ModeTime=0 Time=0 Space= pace=0 SecSpace=0 Compatibility=ILMBRIDGE
  4. For HP-UX systems, change the driver name in the odbc.ini file from libdtlodbc.so to libdtlodbc.sl.
