1. Prior to installing an ODBC driver on Linux, you need to install the unixODBC driver manager and its dependencies. To verify whether unixODBC is installed in the system, you can run the commands which odbcinst and which isql, which should return the path to the corresponding tools, or just run isql, which should print the syntax and available options for the isql utility.
2. To install the driver using the command line, open a terminal window and navigate to the directory with the .deb package using the cd command, e.g. cd ~/Downloads. Run the command sudo dpkg -i devartodbcpostgresql_amd64.deb in the terminal.
Note that the devartodbcpostgresql part of the filename is driver-specific, it will be different for other drivers. Once the installation has been successfully completed, we can configure a DSN to test connection to our database server.
Navigate to the directory with the RPM file and run the command sudo rpm -ivh devart-odbc-postgresql.x86_64.rpm to install the ODBC driver for Linux (64-bit version). Once the installation has been successfully completed, you can configure the DSN that is created during installation, or you can create a new one.
The ODBC interface described here is the interface on the client computer. If the plan is to use ODBC to access a multi-user relational database on a network server, additional DBMS software that allows a client to access the database on the server might be needed. Contact the DBMS supplier for more information on the software needed.
The JDBC driver consists of one or multiple jar files. The Jar file is a library which contains program code and some other files.You need to download the driver's jar files before adding them to DBeaver. Sometimes the jar files are included in the database server distribution - in that case you need to refer to your database documentation or ask your DBA.
DBeaver can download driver jars directly from the Maven repository (it is a global public repository of Java libraries, usually an open-source). If your database driver is published on some public repository you can use this feature. Maven artifacts are better than plain jar files because you can see all existing driver versions and can change the driver version in runtime without any driver properties reconfiguration.
So, the other script that I run, creates the access db, creates the odbc database (pervasive), and now I need to link the table in access to the table in my odbc database. I do it dynamically, as I have many different dbs, and I intend to do this every time I create a new set of dbs. This happens a lot, as we have new clients signing up often. I'm not trying to connect to Access via ODBC. I believe the script is only using ODBC for the pervasive database. I believe the ACE driver is what it uses when I did the ComObject and connected?
MySQL database:Before installing GainSeeker, you must install the ADO.NET driver for MySQL. This is available on the GainSeeker installation CD as \Prerequisites\MySQL\mysql-connector-net-6.4.6.msi .You should ensure database client connectivity to the database server before installing GainSeeker.
Pervasive database:Before installing GainSeeker, you must install the Pervasive database client on each computer that will run GainSeeker programs and test its connectivity to the database server. This client software is available from Pervasive.The GainSeeker installation program will automatically install the ODBC driver for the Pervasive database.
SQL Server database:Microsoft Windows automatically installs the SQL Server database client and ODBC driver, so no additional installations are required. You should ensure database client connectivity to the database server before installing GainSeeker.
NOTE: The PSQL Workgroup engine is only needed for installations where a single user workstation will be running RDP. All other machines including the IRM, interface computers and RDPWin workstations can run on the PSQL 10 client (service) installation 2b1af7f3a8
