Support of Teradata ODBC Driver for AIX

I wanted to check if Teradata ODBC Driver 32-bit can work with IBM AIX 5.3 (64-bit).

If relevant literature is available, appreciate you can also point me to the correct link.

Thanks.

If your ODBC application is running 32-bit mode (even if the server is running 64-bit AIX kernel) you would use a 32-bit driver; if your application is 64-bit, use the 64-bit version of the driver. Both are available for AIX.

I am planning to install a third-party application which product specification said that it only support ODBC driver for Teradata on 32-bit mode. On the other hand, my box currently comes with AIX 5.3 64-bit.

I read from release notes of ODBC Driver For Teradata Version: 13.00.00.00 can support both AIX 32-bit and 64-bit.

Any further advice on this?

Thanks.

Re: Support of Teradata ODBC Driver for AIX

There are two separate drivers, one that can be called by applications running in 32-bit mode and one that can be called by applications running in 64-bit mode. Starting with TTU13.0, they are packaged together in a single install. In prior versions, they are separately packaged and you can install either one or both. Just be sure your application references the correct paths in LIBPATH, .ini files, etc.

"In prior versions, they are separately packaged and you can install either one or both."

Does this imply that I can install 32-bit ODBC driver on the 64-bit AIX?

Yes. The 64-bit AIX OS supports applications running in 32-bit mode, and you can install the 32-bit ODBC driver.
