Lightbulb Not sure if you got your file already

This might take some time,
but will find it if you can give it some time.
Try the /etc folder, have seen most of such config files for DW systems in this folder.
find / -name "odbc.ini" -print | more

I doubt anybody on this forum can help with your second question Smilie.
Better try any Informatica forum, or the help manuals.Guessing them manuals, have it all.
