Problem connecting to MaxDB with Python 2.7

Dear all,

In the past it was easy to connect from a linux server to a MaxDB SAP server via Python / sdb.dbapi. With the new version of python 2.7 this not longer possible since the software is not longer available or incompatible.

Is there some detailed information for this topic available? Where can I find an actual download of the library?

There is an archived discussion on that topic, but it is closed without an solution. But there was a hint, that the software is internally available.

Maybe there is another solution like ODBC? We have tried this, but we did not get it running (wrong DSN? Lib? Permissions?).

Any help is welcome.

Thanks from

Robert

Hi Robert,

we will check your comment "But there was a hint, that the software is internally available".
Are you looking for a library for Linux X86_64 only, or for any other platform(s)?

Frank

Hello Frank,

Thanks for your support and your reply.

We are looking for a library for Linux X86_64 (Ubuntu 16.04). It would be great if there is a possibility to get this.

Yours sincerely

Robert

Hi Robert,

feel free to have a look to the SAP Store, we uploaded a file under "SCN SAP MaxDB Python Library 2.7 for Linux", maybe this helps ;-)

Feedback is very welcome,

Regards

Frank

Hello Frank,

Thanks for your help. I have been ill last week, so I have started the tests with my colleagues today.

Download was successful and the inclusion into Python 2.7 was also possible so far.

I will report the result of the connection to MaxDB the next days here in the forum.

Thank you very very much.

Yours Robert

Hello Frank,

You have done a very good job. Great!

We have installed the software at the customers Ubuntu Linux server and it just works.

You have supported us in a very difficult situation.

Thank you very much for that, Frank.

Please let me know if I can do you a favour.

Yours sincerely

Robert Rae

Thanks and Regards,
