Using strace which I’ve written about previously we can see every system call that OBIEE makes, letting us audit the files that it reads and libraries that it loads. I hit this issue when inadvertently omitting the AuthenticationType parameter. The configuration of these is documented in the OBIEE manuals and is generally a supported configuration. Day 1 Support for any new versions Day One Support for disruptive technologies with frequent release cycles. You can define the default settings in obis.

Thanks Guys, We have just been given the workaround and it appears to work Oebc a shock IBM seems all to un interested in a permenant fix for this though for my liking!!! The ODBC connection name is identical to pdbc data source name specified in the connection pool defined in the repository. HY Now we’re getting somewhere.

My experience, however, is that ODBC can be extremely slow!!! Oracle 8 users will have the original libclntsh.

We failed to successfully connect to the BI Server. Using your text editor of choice, you can search through the strace meant to try and pick apart what’s happening.

Using DataDirect Connect ODBC Drivers on Linux and UNIX

Mon Jan 07, 9: Rather, setup a Data Warehouse or Data Mart and let users enter their “queries from hell” against that database. This blog post is a warts-and-all odbcc of the process I went through to get it to work, since I thought it might be of interest to see some of the forensic methods available when trying odb get things to work.


Upon identification of any security vulnerability, Progress will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to address the vulnerability in accordance with the following policy.

The latter is necessary for dependent libraries used by the driver manager. Drill can be deployed in distributed configuration oraacle all the parallel processing goodness which that bringsbut also run as a single instance locally. The driver is optimized to communicate directly and efficiently with Oracle servers using the Oracle server wire protocol. But this time, nqcmd reports as a different driver manager in driver.

The library path variable is: Driver Manager One of the routes of investigation is the Driver Manager.

How To Poke Around OBIEE on Linux with strace (Working with Unsupported ODBC Sources in OBIEE 12c)

The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1. To update the variable for the driver on Linux, review the following example: You may experience this problem with the Oracle 7. This can have significant performance impact, especially for small LOBs which can potentially be entirely prefetched, because the data is available without having to go through the LOB protocol.

Note Oracle 8 users will have the original libclntsh. But edging away from what is supported or documented, these can be merwnt tools to help explore how applications are running and can be made to work with other components such as 3rd party ODBC drivers. You can invoke strace at process startup or, easier, attach merantt to a running one.

Connecting to Oracle / Databases

From where you can enter a command don’t include the ; suffix as this is added automatically. Next up it opens and reads the odbc. Performance depends on the implementation of the interface. Connect String The client connection string designating the server and database you want to access.


Connecting to Oracle 7.3/8.0 Databases

Of note here is that only nqcmd depends on a driver manager libodbcinst. I also tried add an entry in the odbc.

So from this we odhc see that the ODBC driver is being loaded from the path we expected, and the configuration files that we expected are being read too. Use the ODBC connection name that is identical to the data source name specified in the connection pool defined in the repository.

Let’s note this for now, and carry on through the trace file. This is one interesting point of note here, then, that the ODBC odbf library isn’t loading properly.

ODBC is usually used when database independence or simultaneous access to different data sources is required. For the Orracle provide the IP address or fully qualified host name and the port number. There will be some performance degredation if the environment variable is used, because an SQLPrepare statement is performed for EVERY insert statement that is executed.
