Need Help with Teradata ODBC driver on Oracle/AIX

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to get a Teradata ODBC driver to work on an Oracle/AIX platform instead of windows. I've gotten the Tnsping working, however when I go to use the link I recieve the following error message:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28545: error diagnosed by Net8 when connecting to an agent
Unable to retrieve text of NETWORK/NCR message 65535
ORA-02063: preceding 2 lines from LINK_TDDEV

One thing I've noticed is that the documentation on setting this up in windows specifies the creation of a DSN. There is not a direct comparison for this in AIX, and I think it's this piece that's been throwing us off.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

ODBC Driver for Teradata User Guide chapter 2 "Configuration for UNIX" describes how to setup a DSN in ODBC.INI file.

You can download the ODBC User Guide from:

That link is inaccessible :(

I can't find a download link for the ODBC driver that actually works. Can anyone help?

Bookmarked links don't always work if the site has been restructured.

For the ODBC driver or other publicly available software, use the Downloads link on the Developer Exchange (DevX) home page or go directly to http://downloads.teradata.com

For documentation (if not on DevX), go to http://www.info.teradata.com
