Three UNIX scripts are deployed in the odbc_32 and odbc_64 bin directories. These scripts provide the power to emulate the legacy directory tree structure and customize their odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini files when a release prior to ODBC 14.00 was installed into a directory that is different than the prompted default directory.

These scripts are:

  • convert_ini
  • enable_legacy_installdir
  • set_default_version
  • See Appendix A: “ODBC Legacy Migration” for information about migration, including examples of common migration scenarios.

    Directory Tree Structure

    The directory tree structure consists of:

  • A user-defined portion
  • A Teradata Tools and Utilities fixed portion
  • A Teradata Tools and Utilities product portion
  • Below is an example of the tree structure in relation to the fixed Teradata Tools and Utilities directory.

    This tree structure places all Teradata Tools and Utilities products for each release in a version number sub-directory, which is listed as <version> in Table 5.

    Legacy ODBC Directory Tree Structure
