ODBC Driver Manager Programs
The following are the installation requirements for the ODBC driver.
Windows: Microsoft's ODBC Driver Manager must be installed to use the ODBC driver (release 2.5 or above of the ODBC Driver Manager is acceptable). If the existing Windows installation has no ODBC Administrator or ODBC driver, these items can be downloaded as part of the Microsoft Data Access SDK (MDAC) from http://www.microsoft.com.
UNIX and VMS: The ODBC CLI is the preferred ODBC driver manager if no other ODBC drivers are required. No additional download is required. The only requirement for installation is to execute the utility iisuodbc. The iisuodbc utility provides configuration information to Ingres or Vector and creates an ODBC configuration file.
If the ODBC application requires non-Ingres ODBC drivers, unixODBC Driver Manager can be installed to use the Ingres/Vector ODBC Driver. The unixODBC Driver Manager is often included with Linux or UNIX installations or can be downloaded from http://www.unixodbc.org. The download includes a Readme file with instructions for UNIX, Linux, and VMS.
