On UNIX/Linux platforms the same steps can be followed to verify the installation, except that there is a prerequisite to set the ODBCINI environment variable.

  1. Set the ODBCINI variable to a default odbc.ini file that comes as part of ODBC installation.

    Example: export ODBCINI=/opt/teradata/client/ODBC_32/odbc.ini

  2. Modify this odbc.ini file with the required DBCName, etc.
  3. After setting ODBCINI, follow the sample steps provided above (in case of Windows) to verify successful connection and executing sample SQLs.

For more information about setting ODBCINI, see Configuration of odbc.ini in UNIX/Linux and Apple macOS.
