/etc/odbcinst.ini - An unixODBC drivers configuration DESCRIPTION
/etc/odbcinst.ini is a text configuration file for unixODBC drivers. It can be edited by hand, but the recommended way to update this file is to use the odbcinst(1) utility. FILE FORMAT
The general .ini file format is: [SectionName1] key1 = value1 key2 = value2 ... [SectionName2] key1 = value1 key2 = value2 ... Each ODBC driver has its own section and can be referred to by the name of its section. Recognized configuration keys are: Description A text string briefly describing the driver. Driver A filesystem path to the actual driver library. Setup A filesystem path to the driver setup library. FileUsage odbcinst(1) entry, if you edit the configuration file by hand, you have to supply it yourself. TEMPLATE FILES The recommended way to manage the drivers is using the odbcinst(1) utility. You can install the drivers by supplying it with template file, which has the same format as this file. EXAMPLES
An example of the actual PostgreSQL driver: [PostgreSQL] Description = PostgreSQL driver for GNU/Linux Driver = /usr/lib/ Setup = /usr/lib/ FileUsage = 1 By specifying the driver like that, you can then reference it in the odbc.ini(5) as follows: Driver = PostgreSQL The recommended way to add that driver is by creating template file containg: [PostgreSQL] Description = PostgreSQL driver for GNU/Linux Driver = /usr/lib/ Setup = /usr/lib/ and call the odbcinst(1): # odbcinst -i -d -f template.ini SEE ALSO

DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::ODBC::Microsoft_SQL_Server - Support specific to Microsoft SQL Server over ODBC DESCRIPTION
This class implements support specific to Microsoft SQL Server over ODBC. It is loaded automatically by DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::ODBC when it detects a MSSQL back-end. Most of the functionality is provided from the superclass DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::MSSQL. USAGE NOTES
Basic Linux Setup (Debian) sudo aptitude install tdsodbc libdbd-odbc-perl unixodbc In case it is not already there put the following (adjust for non-64bit arch) in "/etc/odbcinst.ini": [FreeTDS] Description = FreeTDS Driver = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/ Setup = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/ UsageCount = 1 Set your $dsn in connect_info as follows: dbi:ODBC:server=<>;port=1433;driver=FreeTDS;tds_version=8.0 If you use the EasySoft driver (<>): dbi:ODBC:server=<>;port=1433;driver=Easysoft ODBC-SQL Server Basic Windows Setup Use the following $dsn for the Microsoft ODBC driver: dbi:ODBC:driver={SQL Server};server=SERVERSQL_SERVER_INSTANCE_NAME And for the Native Client: dbi:ODBC:driver={SQL Server Native Client 10.0};server=SERVERSQL_SERVER_INSTANCE_NAME Go into Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools -> Data Sources (ODBC) to check driver names and to set up data sources. Use System DSNs, not User DSNs if you want to use DSNs. If you set up a DSN, use the following $dsn for connect_info: dbi:ODBC:dsn=MY_DSN MULTIPLE ACTIVE STATEMENTS
The following options are alternative ways to enable concurrent executing statement support. Each has its own advantages and drawbacks and works on different platforms. Read each section carefully. For more details about using MAS in MSSQL over DBD::ODBC see this excellent document provided by EasySoft: <>. In order of preference, they are: o mars o dynamic_cursors o server_cursors METHODS
connect_call_use_mars Use as: on_connect_call => 'use_mars' in your connection info, or alternatively specify it directly: Your::Schema->connect ( $original_dsn . '; MARS_Connection=Yes', $user, $pass, \%attrs, ) Use to enable a feature of SQL Server 2005 and later, "Multiple Active Result Sets". See "Does DBD::ODBC support Multiple Active Statements?" in DBD::ODBC::FAQ for more information. This does not work on FreeTDS drivers at the time of this writing, and only works with the Native Client, later versions of the Windows MS ODBC driver, and the Easysoft driver. connect_call_use_dynamic_cursors Use as: on_connect_call => 'use_dynamic_cursors' Which will add "odbc_cursortype => 2" to your DBI connection attributes, or alternatively specify the necessary flag directly: Your::Schema->connect (@dsn, { ... odbc_cursortype => 2 }) See "odbc_cursortype" in DBD::ODBC for more information. If you're using FreeTDS, "tds_version" must be set to at least 8.0. This will not work with CODE ref connect_info's. WARNING: on FreeTDS (and maybe some other drivers) this will break "SCOPE_IDENTITY()", and "SELECT @@IDENTITY" will be used instead, which on SQL Server 2005 and later will return erroneous results on tables which have an on insert trigger that inserts into another table with an "IDENTITY" column. WARNING: on FreeTDS, changes made in one statement (e.g. an insert) may not be visible from a following statement (e.g. a select.) WARNING: FreeTDS versions > 0.82 seem to have completely broken the ODBC protocol. DBIC will not allow dynamic cursor support with such versions to protect your data. Please hassle the authors of FreeTDS to act on the bugs that make their driver not overly usable with DBD::ODBC. connect_call_use_server_cursors Use as: on_connect_call => 'use_server_cursors' May allow multiple active select statements. See "odbc_SQL_ROWSET_SIZE" in DBD::ODBC for more information. Takes an optional parameter for the value to set the attribute to, default is 2. WARNING: this does not work on all versions of SQL Server, and may lock up your database! At the time of writing, this option only works on Microsoft's Windows drivers, later versions of the ODBC driver and the Native Client driver. AUTHOR
