User Guide

The Teradata ODBC Driver installation creates a set of symbolic links for the DataDirect ODBC Driver Manager. An application may be affected if the symbolic links are pointing to a newer or older version of the driver manager.

There are two ways to determine which driver manager is used.

  • Set the driver manager symbolic link manually.

    Such a command might look something like:

    ln -sf /opt/teradata/client/16.20/lib/libodbc.so /usr/lib/libodbc.so

    This will affect all applications on the system using ODBC.

  • Set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the directory containing the libodbc.so file you want to use.

    Such a command might look something like:

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/directory/to/driver/manager/

    This will only apply to the particular session being run.

Refer to the README file for the DataDirect Driver Manager Compatibility.
