DataDirect ODBC Driver Installation and Configuration

SearchServer uses DataDirect ODBC drivers to connect to your database. You must install DataDirect, and then perform extra steps to set up an ODBC data source that DataDirect can use.

To install DataDirect ODBC drivers

  1. Navigate to the Siebel image location for the current software version such as D:/Siebel_Install_Image/, and then navigate to the third party directory where the DataDirect patch is located. For example:

    cp [platform]_patch.tar.Z /export/home/fulcrum

  2. Navigate to your Hummingbird directory, then decompress the patch file, for example:

    cd /export/home/fulcrum

    uncompress [platform]_patch.tar.Z

    tar -xvf [platform]_patch.tar

    This will create a "DataDirect" directory below fulcrum/ and replace some Hummingbird files.

  3. Delete the patch file, for example:

    rm [platform]_patch.tar
