We have DS 4.1 SP2 running on Linux and trying to connect to MS SQL database via odbc. The admin guide tells you to modify the ds_odbc.ini file with an entry like this:
Driver = /lib/ libodbc.so
RebrandedLib = TRUE
where install location is location of datadirect ODBC driver. But the problem is there is no libodbc.so in this library. There is a libodc.a file there instead.
Secondly, it also tells us to modify the file referenced by $ODBCINI with the following entry. In my case, ODBCINI also references to ds_odbc.ini under /dataservices/bin folder !!. Also, below it tells you to enter the /lib/DAmsssxx.so file location. But there is no such file under datadirect/lib folder. There is a DAsql25.so instead.
Driver= /lib/[DA][DD] msssxx.so
Description=DataDirect <current version number> SQL Server Wire Protocol
What should I do ? which file do I need to modify exactly and with which library ?? I don't have to modify the odbc.ini file at all ??
Do I need to install the Data direct drivers first ?? if so, how ?
