If the ODBCINI environment variable is set to a release-independent odbc.ini file, then the application will be using the active TTU version of the driver. If the desired driver version is not the active TTU version then you must either make the desired version the active TTU or set the ODBCINI environment variable to an odbc.ini file inside the desired version's directory. See the following example:

export ODBCINI=/Library/Application\ Support/teradata/client/17.20/odbc/odbc.ini

For 16.20 and beyond, the default driver name is Teradata Database ODBC Driver XX.YY where XX.YY is the version. A successful connection may use a connection string like "DRIVER={Teradata Database ODBC Driver 17.20};DBCName=156.43.66.95;UID=username;PWD=password".
