Note that some settings I’m using in my examples work even though they differ from what’s listed in the guide. I originally wasn’t doing sudo which is why I got the error I saw, but when I ran the command with sudo it went away and the driver was installed. One case in point is Skype for Business. I stuck with Server and provided a host name since that works. On Ubuntu x64 we need to modify following files manually: To resolve this, it was necessary to compile and install a parallel ODBC and compile freetds against it. October 10, at 2:

How to make FreeTDS, unixODBC and QT working together

March 3, at 2: BTW, do I really need to do odbcinst -i -d -f odbcinst -i -s -l -f everytime before running any program? If like me you like verifying things worked, you can list the datasources installed in unixODBC:.

Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: The “configure” options can be viewed by executing “. Shouldn’t need to do freetfs every time no — that’d be a one-time thing. If your package managed doesn’t have such a driver available, you have to download the FreeTDS source code and compile it.

If you don’t have a package manager, you will have to compile odbc. Start by setting some environment variables.


From my testing you cannot include the username and password in the datasource configuration file. After a big of digging around I came across a solution that worked for me, which is to change a setting freetdd Skype’s manifest file who knew there was one?

In fact; so similar that the communication protocol used by client software to communicate with these servers are virtually identical. Specifically I’m doing this on Ubuntu Let’s go ahead and create a datasource pointing to a SQL Server database so we have that in freetdx for future use from Python.

Again we will use the odbcinst command instead. Background I wound up going down this road in a rather circuitous way.

Or it’s just frreetds thing on my system. We will use the command line tool ‘isql’. Of course; you will want a login id and password.

Difference between FreeTDS and unixodbc? – Stack Overflow

By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. There are a few moving parts involved so I’m documenting as I go. Can anyone freeyds on my sketchy understanding of what these two things actually do? An ODBC driver can be thought of as analogous to a printer driver or other driver, providing a standard set of functions for the application to use, and implementing DBMS-specific functionality.

RPM resource freetds-unixodbc

Why are both things necessary? Once you have unpacked the source ujixodbc using something like “tar zxvf freetds January 24, at This is a first for me since under normal circumstances we run all our Django applications on Linux with Nginx, but we’re in the process of developing an application for another department and due to the requirements around this project, we’ll be handing the code off to them to deploy.


To resolve this, it was necessary to compile and install a parallel ODBC and compile freetds against it.

unixofbc I’m trying to work out how these two pieces of the jigsaw interact and fit together when connecting to an MS-SQL server on linux. Here are instructions for getting tsql and isql to play nice together.

My initial goal for the weekend project was to get Raspbmc running on one of my Raspberry Pis.
